Dr. Jenny Kim joined Kids First Pediatric Partners in January 2016. After graduating from Amherst College, Dr. Kim pursued a Ph.D. in Victorian literature before finding her true calling in medicine. She received her medical degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago and completed her residency at the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Dr. Kim spent a year in private practice in Arlington Heights before joining the Kids First team. When not trying to convince her toddler to wear pants, Dr. Kim enjoys road trips through the Midwest, trying out new recipes and getting lost in Victorian novels.
