Jennifer Kim

Premedical Division Region 1 Director

Jennifer Kim graduated from the University of Toledo, Ohio with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry and minor in biology. She is currently living in California with her family and will be applying for medical school in the 2020 cycle for 2021 admission. During her first gap year, she was able to work as a medical assistant at a family practice to learn about the present US healthcare system. She also had the privilege to volunteer in South Korea’s national hospital to serve leprosy patients. It was eye-opening to study and compare the practice and service of the Korean healthcare system with the US system. Based on her previous research experience in college and clinical experience that she have gained over the years, she is interviewing for job positions in clinical research. Being a leader on this team and actively participating in AMWA will add meaningful experience and value to her path of pursuing medicine.
