Dr. Cadence Kim grew up just outside of San Francisco. Her father was a surgeon and mother an artist. Before she was 10, she knew she wanted to be a physician.

She completed her undergraduate degree at the Colorado College and attended the University of Rochester, where she obtained her medical degree.

She moved back to California and did a residency in urology at UC Davis. She subsequently moved to Boston for urology fellowship in minimally invasive surgery at Boston University.
