Dr Yumiko Kadota
Founder, Mind Body Miko
Dr Yumiko Kadota graduated from the University of New South Wales in 2010. She experienced burnout as a plastic surgery registrar last year, which forced her resignation. She has since been focusing on recovery and wellness, including yoga teaching. Prior to her hospitalisation for insomnia and post-traumatic stress, Yumiko decided to start a blog to give herself something to do whilst in hospital. Her blog post The ugly side of becoming a surgeon prompted a nationwide discussion on the working conditions of junior doctors, and made international news. Yumiko is utilising this platform to advocate for junior doctors’ wellbeing.
