Kim Thomas’ interest in medicine was peaked while studying ballet at the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music where an injury led her to work with world-class sports medicine physicians and physical therapists.
Kim was drawn to the caregivers’ knowledge and expertise and their attention to the health and welfare of their patients. As a result, she pursued a field where she could provide quality, compassionate care to others.
Kim went on to earn a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas where she graduated with Honors. Upon graduation, she worked in cardiovascular and thoracic surgery and had the pleasure of caring for surgical patients from initial evaluation to surgery and post-operative follow-up. With her transition to Interventional Radiology, Kim enjoys helping patients with vein and artery issues gain back their health.
She currently serves on the Society of Interventional Radiology’s Nurse Practitioner/Physician Assistant Section Governing Council and is Acting Chairman for their Continuing Medical Education Committee.
