Dr. Kim received his Bachelor of Arts from The Johns Hopkins University and his Doctor of Medicine from Jefferson Medical College. He completed his residency in General Surgery at the University of Massachusetts School of Medicine which included a two-year research fellowship in liver regeneration and cancer.
Following his residency, Dr. Kim went on to the University of Toronto and the Hospital for Sick Children for his Fellowship in adult and pediatric Multiorgan Transplantation and Hepatobiliary Surgery. Here, he gained expertise in the surgical management of liver, biliary and pancreatic diseases. This training balanced both a transplantation and oncologic approach.
Dr. Kim spent 5 years as faculty at the University of Florida, where he developed a robust practice specializing in surgery for diseases of the liver, biliary tree and the pancreas. Patients needing complex hepatobiliary surgery, including laparoscopic liver resections, were referred to him throughout the Southeast. He was also heavily involved with pediatric and adult transplantation of the liver, kidney and pancreas, and was the Director of pediatric and adult liver transplantation. Dr. Kim’s basic science research focused on the cellular mechanisms of liver cancer growth, and his educational activities included being the ASTS Fellowship Director.
Dr. Kim is the new Surgical Director of Liver Transplantation at the University of Utah. His clinical practice will span the University Hospital, the Huntsman Cancer Institute and Primary Children’s Medical Center. Through his experience and expertise, Dr. Kim will fortify the University’s ability to treat diseases of the liver, biliary tract and pancreas.
