Dr Chang Ho Yoon

Dr Chang Ho Yoon

Aotearoa New Zealand Research Development Scholarship ($20,000)

‘DiagKNOWsis: development of a mobile application to provide diagnostic feedback’

Originally from South Korea, Chang Ho has roots in Edinburgh (Scotland), Cambridge (England), London (England), and Auckland (New Zealand). He is an Advanced Trainee in General and Acute Care Medicine, and currently a Wellcome Trust PhD Scholar at the University of Oxford, where he is studying the clinical impact and prediction of antibiotic resistance. Chang Ho’s research interests lie at the intersection of computerised decision support, artificial intelligence, and translatable solutions to various inefficiencies in healthcare delivery.

This RACP Scholarship will enable him to work alongside, and learn much from, a formidable team of clinical educationalists (Drs Art Nahill and Nic Szecket) and clinical software developers (a group led by Dr Chester Holt-Quick) with a common goal: to minimise diagnostic error by bringing diagnostic feedback at scale.
