    Hello everyone!

    The biggest medical school news of the month (and possibly the year) is the announcement from Kaiser Permanente that they are planning to open a medical school in Southern California in 2019. The medical school is to be structured as a non profit and KP will fund its startup costs.

    The Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine will base physician training on “strategic pillars” such as providing care beyond traditional medical settings, emphasizing collaboration and teamwork, and addressing health disparities. The company readily admits its medical school “won’t be a fit for some students” and it should be noted that KP tends to have a reputation for occasionally stifling physician creativity in the practice of medicine.

    Nonetheless, we think this is exciting news. The new school will help address the physician shortage and the differentiating teaching techniques could very well help increase the level of innovation in our medical schools.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Sincerely,

    Hello everyone!

    We just wanted to let you know that Kaiser Permanente announced earlier today that its new medical school will be built at at 94 S. Los Robles Avenue in central Pasadena on land that KP already owns.

    Best of luck with your applications!
