Kimberly Day, DO, is a second-year pediatrics resident at the University of Oklahoma in Tulsa, OK. She grew up in Oklahoma and graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology. During this time she worked as a nurse assistant at OU Medical Center and gained a greater interest in the medical field, particularly critical care medicine. She graduated from Oklahoma State University School of Osteopathic Medicine (OSU-COM) in 2017, and began her pediatrics residency soon afterwards.
Kimberly has been interested in critical care medicine since she started working in the medical field, which continued to grow when she was a medical student, and continues to be her primary interest. When working in a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) as a medical student, she found her interest and joy intersecting. The PICU combines her fascination in critical care medicine with the pleasure and privilege of caring for children. She has considered other fellowships during her residency but continues to be drawn to critical care. She enjoys delving into the pathophysiology, performing procedures when necessary, but also finds pleasure in communicating with families to help provide understanding and comfort. She is excited to apply for pediatric critical care fellowship following residency.
When she has spare time, Kimberly adores spending time with her husband, Joshua Day, who is currently a 3rd year medical student, and is enrolled in a dual degree PhD and DO program through OSU-COM. They enjoy hiking, camping, and kayaking, which is a newer hobby for Kimberly. She finds the best way for her to relax and destress is through physical activity, her favorite of which is yoga or through cooking, which serves as a creative outlet. She also makes an effort to attend every Tulsa Ballet performance, as she grew up dancing and still enjoys experiencing art in motion.
