US Navy Lt. Jonny Kim, a Navy SEAL and Harvard-trained physician who recently graduated from NASA training, stressed that the skills he obtained throughout his military career complemented the ones he gained from his medical experience.




In an interview with Business Insider, Kim outlined the "hard skills" he learned from being a SEAL — from deploying twice to Iraq, to participating in dozens of combat missions and earning a Silver Star.




Kim contrasted the hard skills with "soft skill" traits that he picked up during his education from Harvard Medical School and his residency at Massachusetts General Hospital.
