Yuni Yamada

Yuji Yamada's portrait



Birthplace: Kusemura, Gifu

Living in the US since 2015

Place of Residence: New York, NY

Current occupation: Medical Doctor, MPH candidate, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai


Current title: Assistant professor, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

Career:  He graduated from Keio University School of Medicine in 2008. After initial training at Tokyo Medical and Dental University Hospital and other residencies, he has been a resident in Internal Medicine at Mount Sinai Beth Israel since 2015, a Fellow in Geriatrics at Mount Sinai University Hospital since 2020, and his current position since 2022. He is board-certified in general internal medicine in Japan, board-certified in internal medicine in the United States, and board-certified in geriatrics in the United States.

Role at FLATjp: 

I hope to play a role in NPO planning and management, support for the elderly and chronically ill patients, including those with dementia, and connect necessary medical resources to those who need them.

Hope for FLATjp: 

Many people who are ill outside of their country may find it difficult to reach sufficient necessary information and medical resources due to language and cultural barriers. When they become ill, they should first turn to FLAT. I would like to work with my team members to make FLATjp a place where people can drop in "on a whim" when they need help.

Interest: Learning


In Japan, he is an official commentator for NewsPicks and Fuji TV's Live News Alpha, as well as a personality on the podcast "Doctors No Need Radio. His recent books include "The Best Old Age" (Kodansha)
