Emily (Yae-Ji) Kim, PharmD

Assistance Professor, Pharmacy Practice

Dr. Kim is originally from Seoul, Korea but went to high school in a small town in Colorado. She missed being in a big city, so she decided to move to New York for college and stayed in New York City for pharmacy school as well as her PGY-1 and academic fellowship training. She went on to complete a PGY-2 in Ambulatory Care in Kansas. She is excited to return to Touro College of Pharmacy as a faculty member!
