Kaiser Goes Back to School

Jan 12, 2016

AN EDUCATION IN CAREGIVING: As demand for physicians continues to climb, Kaiser Permanente announced plans to launch a new medical school in Southern California. The Oakland, Calif.-based managed healthcare provider says the school will focus on training students in its integrated style of care, which includes research, the use of new technologies and teaching doctors to work in caregiving teams.

“We need to prepare physicians for the way health care is delivered in the future,” Edward Ellison, executive medical director for the Southern California Permanente Medical Group, tells NPR. The Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine will enroll its first class of 48 students in 2019.
