- University of South Alabama College of Medicine, Doctor of Medicine
Dr. Krist earned his medical degree from the University of South Alabama College of Medicine in Mobile in 1997, and he completed a pediatric residency there in 2000. He earned a master’s degree in health administration from the University of Cincinnati in Ohio in 2018. He is board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics.
“After earning my undergraduate degree in finance, medicine sort of found me!” Dr. Krist says. “Heading out on this journey hoping to make a difference in the world, partnering with parents in raising healthy children has been a wonderfully fulfilling journey. I am so grateful for the work I am entrusted to do.”
He chose North Mississippi Medical Clinics because of the people – both those with whom he works and those living in the community.
In his free time, Dr. Krist enjoys music, guitar, podcasts, reading, hiking and skiing.
