About the Instructors

Kimberly Persley, MD

Dr. Kimberly Monique Persley graduated Magna Cum Laude from Texas Wesleyan University in 1989 and received her medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in 1993. She was awarded the Martin Luther King Scholarship Award in 1991.

She continued her studies at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, completing her internship there and then serving as Chief Resident for Internal Medicine. She began her gastroenterology Fellowship in 1997 and after completing that in 2000, went on to further studies with a Present-Levinson Inflammatory Bowel Disease Fellowship that she completed in 2001 at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. During her fellowship, she conducted clinical research, focusing on Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis in particular.

"My experience at Mt. Sinai was incredible," states Dr. Persley. "I learned so much about the treatment of Crohn's disease and colitis. I also gained a greater appreciation for well done clinical trials. The experience truly enriched my life and current GI practice.”
