Dr. Kim was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She completed both her Bachelor of Science (Honours) and Doctor of Medicine at the University of Manitoba. She is currently
in the fourth postgraduate year of a diagnostic radiology program, for which she serves
as chief resident.
Dr. Kim values medical education and strongly believes that medical school and residency should be a welcoming and empowering educational experience. She is inspired by the resiliency and commitment that residents have demonstrated throughout the pandemic.
She served as president of the Professional Association of Residents and Interns of Manitoba (PARIM) through contract negotiations and the COVID-19 pandemic. She also fiercely advocated for residents as the president of Resident Doctors of Canada (RDoC) in 2020–21, especially with regard to examinations. She has developed strong relationships with national organizations and will ensure that she uses her experience and expertise as she continues in her roles as past president of PARIM and past president of RDoC.
Outside of medicine, Dr. Kim likes to volunteer and mentor in her Korean community.
She enjoys spending quality time with her husband and is looking forward to travelling again one day.
