Kim named Resident of the Month


Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine has announced Jeffery Kim, M.D., as the January Resident of the Month.

Kim was nominated for the honorable award by the faculty of his program. According to a press release, “To be nominated by nearly all the faculty of your program is truly an honor in itself,” said Paulette S. Wehner, M.D. “However, by having the words ‘exceptional’ and ‘outstanding’ used in nearly every nomination, Dr. Kim’s nomination is brought to the forefront.”

Kim is in his fifth year at the School of Medicine where he is also the administrative chief.

Kim has a medical degree from Rush University and a master’s in chemistry from the University of Colorado, where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering as well.

Kim will continue his medical career with a spine fellowship at Northwestern University after his residency training is complete in June.

For the rest of his time as Resident of the Month at the Marshall School of Medicine, Kim will have a designated parking spot and will receive a certificate of recognition.
