Dr. Kim attended Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., where he graduated magna cum laude, meaning ‘with great distinction,’ receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry. As an undergraduate, he was nominated into Sigma Xi, one of the world’s oldest honor societies that recognizes achievements in science and engineering, for his research in organic chemistry. He also earned early acceptance into the Georgetown University School of Medicine, from where he received his Doctor of Medicine degree.
Dr. Kim completed a year of general surgical residency at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville and completed his orthopedic training through the San Francisco Orthopedic Residency Program.

This fellowship also involved training at Boston Children’s Hospital, a facility that features a sports medicine division that was the first in the nation devoted to the treatment of pediatric and adolescent athletes.
