Dr. Nina LUM

Dr. Lum is a Hospitalist and Chief Quality Officer at a hospital in Kentucky. She is board certified in Family Medicine and was Chief Resident at The University of Kentucky Rural Track/St. Claire Regional program upon residency graduation in 2015.

In 2012, she obtained her Doctor of Medicine from a Caribbean medical school; The University for Sint Eustatius, Netherlands Antilles.

Between 2016 and 2018, she was a community based preceptor for third and fourth year medical students of LMU-DCOM out of Tennessee.

Dr. Nina Lum is one of the original co-authors of the best selling medical anthology "The Chronicles of Women In White Coats". She blogs at www.theencouragingdoc.com and due to her openness with her own struggles as an IMG, she has since become a self acclaimed educational coach for International Medical Graduates affectionately known as IMG's.

As a native of Cameroon, Dr Lum is a non-US IMG, and based on her arduous life experiences with assimilating into the American medical system, she voluntarily helps other IMG's to achieve success by sharing pearls she learned the hard way. She is a believer in the effect of variability and need to reduce bias with her proposed methods, hence she conglomerates experiences from multiple IMG's on her blog series known as "The IMG Roadmap Series" . This coaching program was developed to fill a void based on the overwhelming demand for information pertinent to successful international/foreign medical graduates.

You can find her on Instagram @theencouragingdoc.
