He has completed an additional 3-year post-doctoral fellowship in Toronto (Drs. Kavanagh and Brochard) exploring translational research on ventilator-induced lung injury. Dr. Yoshida has won multiple hospital, university and international awards, most recently the ‘Global Rising Star’ award from the Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society.
