Yuta is part of our founding cohort of students at the Kent and Medway Medical School (KMMS). Since September 2020, the school has been educating aspiring doctors to train to deliver 21st century medicine.

Yuta is enrolled on the Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (BM BS) programme, and is a recipient of the Canterbury Health Education Foundation Scholarship.

“Growing up, I never saw female doctors with similar ethnic backgrounds as mine, thus I found it difficult to perceive medicine as an attainable career path. KMMS’ primary focus on widening participation inspires me. Not only will it provide a diverse range of individuals with the opportunity to study medicine, but also provide children from ethnic minorities with doctors that they can relate to and aspire to become.

I chose KMMS as I believed that everything I wanted to be as a doctor was underpinned in their values – to be brave, kind, passionate, collaborative, respectful, innovative and curious. I consider it a privilege to be able to be a part of a new, innovative, patient-centred, student-centred, medical school."

"I would like to say a sincere thank you for allowing me to be a recipient of the Canterbury Health Education Foundation Scholarship"

Join our many benefactors and become part of the Kent and Medway Medical School story.
