[HCMC] New Japanese Pediatricians
 
Dr. Takaaki Mori
Speciality: Pediatrics
Nationality: Japan
Languages Spoken: English, Japanese
Gender: Male

 

Coming to Vietnam straight out of a year’s service as a clinical fellow in Singapore, Dr. Takaaki Mori has a distinguished background in both pediatrics and emergency medicine. He is a graduate of Kansai Medical University, receiving his MD in 2005, and has worked in numerous positions around Japan as a fellow in pediatrics—more recently with a focus on pediatric emergencies. One of his finest achievements in the field was the innovative introduction of ultrasound scanning in pediatric emergency treatment, which has been successful in performing effective diagnoses with minimum invasiveness.

A passionate physician, Dr. Mori determined to study medicine after developing an admiration for doctors as a young boy. Having undertaken his medical training and experience as a doctor entirely in Japan, he became interested in comparing medical operations between Japan and other countries, prompting his decision to work abroad. He personally enjoys traveling to Asian countries, and is particularly interested in experiencing local cuisine and cultures, as well as scuba diving.

Dr. Mori hopes to enhance a sense of security and trust for Family Medical Practice among parents and educators, providing medical treatment for their children and minimizing their concerns. He intends to provide effective treatments for diseases (especially acute diseases) and injuries for pediatric patients at international quality standards.

Dr. Shoji’s passion for the medical profession emerged when he encountered sufferers of leprosy as a child, leading him to devote his life to alleviate the suffering of others. Graduating in the year 2000 from the University of Tsukuba, one of Japan’s oldest national educational institutions, Dr. Shoji quickly focused on pediatric medicine and went on to practice in several hospitals in this field over the following decade, after which time he worked in tuberculosis and other infectious diseases control projects for the Japan Anti-Tuberculosis Association, undertaking overseas activities in the Philippines, Cambodia, and Ghana.


Graduating with his Ph.D. in Medicine from the University of Tsukuba in 2012, Dr. Shoji has long maintained an interest in the Southeast and South Asian region, and has wanted to serve in these parts as a clinical doctor for some time.

Dr. Shoji has been involved in consulting for children on mind and body developmental issues with a determined focus on ability rather than disability. He hopes to support the community of families in Vietnam, addressing prevalent pediatric health and developmental issues for children, including pediatric  tuberculosis at FMP.
