Dr. Kim holds the George G. B. Bilsten Professorship in the Art of Communication with Peers and Patients at the University of Washington Medical Center, Department of Surgery. This professorship has served an important platform for creating and implementing novel research and teaching programs in communication skills, with a particular emphasis on healthcare conflict management and power hierarchy. Based on partnerships with a wide range of clinical, administrative and educational stakeholders across UW Medicine, Dr. Kim has been awarded funding by the UW Medicine Patient Safety and Innovations Program (PSIP) and the Arnold P.

Her work has been shared with audiences locally, regionally, nationally and internationally and has been published in journals such as Journal of Healthcare Quality, Journal of Interprofessional Care, and Conflict Resolution Quarterly.
