After the fall of South Vietnam, Dr. Dinh and his family emigrated and settled in Galveston, Texas. Dr. Dinh underwent retraining and became board-certified in both Obstetrics & Gynecology and Pathology at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston.
Dr. Dinh joined the faculty at UTMB and rose quickly to full professorship. Honoring the Vietnamese tradition of using the first name, he was well known locally as “Dr. Tung.” His passion continued in patient care and teaching. He won many teaching awards and recognition including the prestigious Osler Institute Scholar Prize.
