When discussing her time in medicine, Dr. Kim describes her go-to statement for approaching patients as, "Treat your patients like you would treat your own family." She offers a friend-like setting where she maintains a supportive role while creating a personalized approach to patient care and management. One of her favorite aspects of her field is the innovative interventions that have paved the way to improve survival and quality of life for each patient. She describes how watching her patients survive and thrive longer has become a source of encouragement for her work in hematology and oncology. To keep her life balanced, Dr. Kim seeks out nature, including visiting US national parks and hiking trails in East Iceland, and she explores urban cultures of different countries. She enjoys ballet classes and equestrian horseback riding, but sometimes wishes she could be a better cook!
