The Real-Life Grey’s Anatomy

Yumiko Kadota always dreamed of being a doctor. And it happened. She made it happen. And at first, she thrived in the high-pressure, high-performance environment of the public hospital system. Until she didn’t.

It culminated in a total breakdown at which point Yumiko had no choice but to resign.
On her way out, she wrote a searing, emotional blog post that gave an inside account of how a broken system was breaking young doctors - and it went viral. So what went wrong? And how is she now?


With thanks to Yumiko Kadota, find out more about her here:
