Advanced Echocardiography / Imaging Fellows

Isabel Kim, MD

Advanced Echo-Imaging Fellow

Dr. Isabel Kim grew up in the Niagara region of Ontario, Canada. Over the course of 6 years, she managed to complete both her bachelors and MD at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. Following this, she moved west to Vancouver, British Columbia for both her internal medicine and cardiology residency training, making her the youngest cardiologist in Canada. She is now excited to join the team at Stanford University to expand her understanding of advanced echocardiography and imaging techniques, particularly as it pertains to structural interventions. Outside of medicine, she has an interest in design and architecture, exploring local restaurants, and nearly all activities that occur on or near the water.
