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"
