Due to COVID-19, this event has been cancelled.
Dr Yumiko Kadota's blog post 'The ugly side of becoming a surgeon' went internationally viral and was the catalyst for her brave and unflinching memoir Emotional Female. Hear from Kadota as she discusses finding the resilience to rebuild after suffering a physical, emotional and existential breakdown from the toxic culture of the Australian public hospital system, with Dr Ranjana Srivastava.
