Interview

working at the international hospital in Vietnam as a Japanese doctor

-Please tell us your reason for becoming a doctor and how did you end up working in Vietnam?

After majoring law at university, I strongly feel distrustful toward the medical care when I worked as a reporter in NHK. So this leads me on the path of becoming a doctor. Afterward, by actually working in the medical field made me realized that many doctors are working very hard to help the patients.
The reason for me to working in Vietnam is because I was always concerned on the medical cares in Asia and Vietnam is on medical expertise of respiratory and physicians. And with the invitation, I decided to contribute my knowledge and skills to the medical care in Vietnam.

-Please tell us if there is any unique disease or wound that you encounter in Hanoi, Vietnam comparing to Japan.

There seem to be more infections such as “Dengue Fever” or “Tuberculosis” in Vietnam. Due to the severe air pollution, the needs for respiratory medical treatments are very high. As for Japanese patients, with the increase in elder travelers there seem to be more patients on the heart and cerebrovascular diseases.

-Please tell us something about the VINMEC INTERNATIONAL HOSPITAL and what you are working on recently.

It is a private hospital built approximately five years ago in Hanoi. It is equipped with the newest medical equipment for CT and MRI. The hospital is also certified with a JCI. For me, I mainly examine foreign patients and working as a medical specialist in respiratory care for everyone.

-The interval between wealth and poverty goes on widening in Vietnam, do you have anything opinions on the problems that it may cause to medical care and nursing.

The riches fly out to Thai or Singapore for medical treatments. Also, recently getting treatment at the private hospital in Vietnam seems to increase.
On the other hand, national hospitals are packed with every day with patients waiting for a long time just to get a proper treatment. More hospitals seem to be constructed today. The majority of Vietnam’s population consists of young people with average age of 28, and soon Vietnam will be facing problems on nursing for the elder when the population aging begins.
