President Ho Chi Minh, a hero of national liberation, a world cultural celebrity has
left us a huge and extremely valuable spiritual legacy, which we have not been able to exploit
the full extent of that heritage in both breadth and depth, including his ideology on medical
ethics. Researching on his medical ethics is important in improving the medical ethics of
Vietnamese doctors today.
The author uses the method of analysis, synthesis, and comparison of data sources to study
Ho Chi Minh's ideology on medical ethics. The research results show that Ho Chi Minh's
ideology on medical ethics shows the unity between morality and politics - a characteristic in
Ho Chi Minh's ideology, which is the revolutionary medical ethics in general and the medical
ethics of the socialist doctor, including ethical standards to regulate the perception and
behavior of doctors in relation to patients, profession, colleagues, society and themselves.
