The KP Experience
We have a strong vision for what's to come, and we work together to make it a reality.
We believe in what you bring to the table, and that you have a hand in shaping the future of health and care.
There is no greater reward than working as one with a powerful team of experts to deliver change. It's what we stand for. It's what we do.
We believe in health — yours, ours, everyone's. And we work tirelessly to enable, support, and drive it.
We recognize that we are role models for health. We empower healthy workplaces, healthy habits, healthy lifestyles, and healthy living.
We know that every team member is essential to our success, and we support each and every employee to be his or her best.
For us, learning is a way of life. Whether you sit on the clinical, technical, or business side of our organization, we're always exploring our potential — as teams and as individuals. With the freedom to pursue career paths and educational opportunities that match your ambitions, you'll challenge yourself to reach new heights and feel empowered to make a difference.
A sample of our learning and personal development resources includes:

- Skill Sharpening: We inspire ongoing growth through online courses and in-person classes, stretch assignments, the exploration and use of new technologies, and even via volunteer work.
- Well-Rounded Development: Learning at Kaiser Permanente not only shapes employees in their specialties — it also gives them the vital business skills that every team member employs to help deliver outstanding care.
- Mentorship Program: Informal mentoring takes place daily across our organization. But for employees who want to engage in more formal learning and teaching, we have a program that connects mentors and mentees, establishing powerful connections and enabling us to raise the bar for ourselves and others so that together, we can reach our highest potential.
- Leadership Training: Develop the skills to take the next professional step through training programs and courses.
- Size & Scope: Perhaps beyond anything else, our immense reach provides opportunities to grow your career in many directions.
