Introducing the Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine
The future of health care is reflected in Kaiser Permanente's nationally recognized model — where physicians and other health care professionals all work together in our state-of-the-art hospitals and medical offices, supported by our insurance plan to provide high-quality, affordable health care services and improve the health of our members and the communities we serve. To advance this mission, we are opening the Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine — giving future physicians the 21st century education they need to practice anywhere they choose.
EXPLORE THIS UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO INSPIRE FUTURE GENERATIONS OF PHYSICIAN LEADERS
MORE THAN JUST A MEDICAL SCHOOL
Opening its doors in 2019 in Pasadena, CA, the Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine will offer more than a conventional medical education. It will offer the unique opportunity to have access to the people, data, and technology of one of the nation’s highest-performing health care systems.
The School will not only provide a future-facing education, but also hands-on experience, advanced team training, and critically relevant knowledge that comes directly from the care delivery system. In addition, the School will address prevention, wellness, and resilience for the total health of patients and physicians themselves.
This unparalleled approach, plus a deep commitment to inclusion, will create physicians who are better prepared to face the medical challenges of the future and help our nation’s diverse communities thrive.
APPLY YOUR VISION TO OUR FUTURE
By joining the team, you will be designing and implementing the Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine. You will have the opportunity of a lifetime to create a medical school that will educate physicians for the 21st century and beyond, as well as be a catalyst for change in medical education.
Experience with high-profile projects, clearly defined timelines, and a hands-on approach are all factors that will help in defining the stronger candidates for these positions. They will be working as part of an extremely dynamic team of professionals supporting all aspects of the School of Medicine. We are looking for individuals who thrive in highly challenging roles and within a high-functioning, team-based environment — people who know the box well and want to create outside of it.
Drawing from our extensive network of hospitals, medical offices, and community programs, the Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine will offer students meaningful clinical and community experience from their early weeks, teaching them how to deliver end-to-end accountable care with multispecialty teams. We will train future physicians within a culture that values holistic wellness and resilience, and empowers physicians to take better care of themselves so that they may also take better care of their patients.
You will find diversity everywhere — with faculty, clinicians, patients, and students. Our student body will reflect the populations they serve and be mission-driven in their desire to improve the total health of their communities. This deep commitment to inclusion will result in graduates better prepared to face the challenges of the future and to care for patients from our nation’s diverse communities.
We are calling all visionary thinkers and education experts to shape the future of medical education and health care.
