Yoshinori's mission to change healthcare began while he was a medical student at the University of Tokyo. Realizing that many of his patients sought medical care too late, missing the chance of an early diagnosis, or unnecessarily visited hospitals for ailments that could be treated at home, Yoshinori set out on a mission to help guide people to the best care. With longtime friend Kota Kubo, he co-founded Ubie inc. to develop and scale AI solutions that would help patients around the world. Yoshinori has extensive clinical experience, having worked as a general practitioner at Tokyo Metropolitan Geriatric Medical Center, and University of Tokyo Hospital.
