2020-2021 Resident

Clarice (Claire) Kim, PT, DPT 

 

 Dr. Claire Kim is originally from Seattle Washington and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of Washington. She earned a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Touro University Nevada in Henderson, NV. 

 

I pursued a neurologic residency because I want to become a Board-Certified Neurologic Clinical Specialist and explore a future in teaching. The more I immerse myself into the field of neurologic physical therapy, the more I understand how much there is to learn, and how a residency will be a springboard for a lifetime of learning in this specialty. I see the combined coursework, mentorship, teaching opportunities, and research as an accelerated in-depth introduction into neurologic rehabilitation. This neurologic residency will make me a more proficient clinician, able to help my patients, and provide insight into graduate level instruction. By the end of the residency I hope to provide

a level of care that is based on the best current evidence, grounded in best practice, and effective so that patients I work with regain the best quality of life possible. 

 

My five-year plans include practicing in a neurological physical therapy setting, inpatient or out patient, and mentoring students as a clinical instructor, teaching at a DPT program as adjunct faculty, and working pro-bono in developing countries focusing on communities that do not readily have physical therapy available to them. 

 

Go Bobcats!
