The Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine will waive all tuition for the full four years of school for its first five classes, the organization announced yesterday. The school has received preliminary accreditation from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education, and plans to begin accepting applications from prospective students in June for admission to its first class in the summer of 2020. It aims to prepare future physicians to become collaborative, transformative leaders committed to prevention, fluent in data-driven care, and adept at addressing the needs of underserved patients and communities. The school will be based in Pasadena with clinical education taking place primarily in the greater Los Angeles area in Kaiser Permanente hospitals and clinics and in partnered community health centers.
