김지수 PA-C는 한국에서 중학교까지 교육을 받았고, 미국에서 고등학교 졸업후, University of California, Irvine 에서 Biomedical Engineering 학사학위와 Barry University 에서 PA석사학위를 받았습니다. 어린시절, 만성비염을 앓았고, 많은 이비인후과 방문을 통해, 이비인후과 치료에 관심이 있었습니다. PA 학위 공부를 시작하기 전, 풀러튼 개인 이비인후과에서 5년이 넘는 시간동안 배우며 일을 했습니다. 현재, Los Angeles Center For Ear, Nose, Throat, and Allergy(LACENTA) 병원에서 이비인후과 PA-C로 일을 하고 있습니다. 한국어를 매우 유창하게 구사할수 있으며, 환자가 의료 결정에 적극 참여하는 것을 매우 지지합니다. 환자 교육에 큰 중점을 두어, 환자 본인이 자신의 이비인후과적 상태와 치료를 완전히 이해할수 있도록 도와주고 있습니다.

Jisoo Kim, PA-C, received her middle school education in Korea, and after graduating from high school in the United States, she received a bachelor's degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of California, Irvine and a master's degree in PA from Barry University. As a child, I suffered from chronic rhinitis, and after visiting many ENT doctors, I became interested in ENT treatment. Before starting my PA degree studies, I studied and worked at a private ENT clinic in Fullerton for over 5 years. Currently, I am working as an ENT PA-C at Los Angeles Center For Ear, Nose, Throat, and Allergy (LACENTA) Hospital. She speaks Korean very fluently and is very supportive of patients' active participation in medical decisions. We place great emphasis on patient education, helping patients fully understand their ENT condition and treatment.
