After earning her undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College, she graduated from Tulane Medical School in 2006, and was honored with the Gold Humanism in Medicine Award. Dr. Kathryn Perkins Tift completed her residency in orthopaedic surgery at Harbor/ UCLA Medical Center in 2010, prior to completing a fellowship in pediatric orthopaedic surgery at the Shriners' Hospital for Children in Los Angeles the following year.
