Research Interests

Helen Kim, MD is an Associate Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. After completing a clinical fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility (REI) at Brigham & Women's Hospital, Dr. Kim pursued research training as a scholar in the Reproductive Scientist Development Program. In 2000, Dr. Kim joined the faculty at University of Chicago, where she served on their Institutional Review Board (IRB), conducted NIH-funded research, and taught reproductive endocrinology in the medical school and college. Prior to joining the Northwestern faculty in 2018, she was Chief of Reproductive Endocrinology at the University of Chicago. Dr. Kim is active in the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and The Endocrine Society and has been a board examiner for the REI subspecialty examination. She has served as an ad hoc peer reviewer for several journals and is currently on the editorial boards of Fertility and Sterility as well as Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. Dr. Kim is committed to the philosophy that everyone who wants to build a family should be able to do so. She has extensive experience with gay and lesbian couples and understands the fertility options available for them. She has helped numerous couples and individuals conceive with third party reproduction, using donor eggs, donor sperm, and gestational carriers. Clinically, her interests also include infertility due to menstrual disorders, such as premature ovarian failure, polycystic ovary syndrome, and particularly, hypothalamic amenorrhea - loss of menstrual cycles resulting from stress, malnutrition or excessive exercise.
