Featured in the NYU Langone Health Newsletter on multiple occasions with his institution-wide projects in patient safety, Dr. Kim has contributed to improving the interpretation service at NYU Tisch, NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital and NYU Brooklyn Hospital for all physicians. This included the creation of official institutional guides demonstrating both how to report patient safety events at three hospital sites and how to perform the IPASS (handoff).
Dr. Kim has numerous leadership positions at the regional and national levels, and has contributed as a co-author in the Essentials of Regenerative Medicine in Interventional Pain Management. Additionally, he has had quite a few articles and medical journals published, and has presented case reports at national conferences.
He has appeared on the website of Man's 4th Best Hospital as an interviewer of the author of The House of God, Dr. Samuel Shem. In 2020, The House of God was on the Washington Post list of “12 novels that have changed our lives”—Shem being the only author still alive. In 2019, in an MDLinx vote by doctors of “The 10 Most Influential Books,” The House of God was Number 1.
During his leisure time, Dr. Kim likes to travel to attend medical conferences.
