Dr. Shin received her BA in behavioral biology from Johns Hopkins University. Her interest in the potential for stem cell mediated repair in diabetic wounds and her deep commitment to patient care led her to pursue a dual PhD and DPM degree at the Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. Dr. Shin joined the Keck School of Medicine of USC and the Southwestern Academic Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA) in 2018 after completing residencies in Podiatric Surgery and Rearfoot and Ankle Surgery and a fellowship in Limb Salvage and Reconstruction at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

Dr. Shin is dedicated to preserving and restoring mobility, which she believes is crucial to a patient’s quality of life.
