      Dr. Kim says...

      Dr. Lawrence Kim was born and raised in southern New Jersey. He attended Princeton University for his undergraduate studies and graduated cum laude from the Woodrow Wilson School for Public and International Affairs.  He received his medical degree from The Johns Hopkins University and went on to complete internship and residency in internal medicine at Beth Israel Hospital of Harvard Medical School. He completed his gastroenterology fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco where he pursued additional training in outcomes and clinical research.  During fellowship, he also received advanced training in endoscopic ultrasound, which remains an area of special interest. 

      Dr. Kim has been a leader in organized medicine throughout his career. In 2004, he was the first gastroenterologist to join the Board of Directors of the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, the leading accreditor of ambulatory endoscopy centers.  In 2011, he was elected Clinical Practice Councilor for the American Gastroenterological Association and serves on the Governing Board of this national society.  Dr. Kim is committed to improving the quality of digestive care worldwide; he has led or served on multiple medical missions to Vietnam and Cambodia.  Beyond his professional activities, he is first and foremost a dedicated husband and father. An avid skier and outdoors enthusiast, he loves nothing more than spending a day in the Colorado mountains with his family.
