What got me interested in pursuing a career in healthcare

Dr. Kam’s family was one of the main inspirations leading him into the practice of medicine. Growing up, his brother suffered an accident that affected his eye. After spending hours interacting with the medical staff at the University of Utah Medical Center in Salt Lake City, he and his family developed a strong respect for healthcare providers.

After his father’s untimely passing during his freshman year of college, his drive and motivation to succeed in medicine intensified. When it was time to decide which field of medicine to specialize in, Dr. Kam drew on one of his other passions; sports.

core beliefs about practicing medicine

Dr. Kam’s approach to medicine is to get along with his patients. He tries to take the time to get to know each person and what they’re going through. To Dr. Kam, it’s more about developing a partnership with a patient, so they feel like they’re managing their care as well.
