Kaiser Permanente will open a medical school based in Pasadena in 2020. It's been announced that the school will waive all tuition for the full four years of school for its first five graduate classes, and will be using a small-group, case-based curriculum. One of Kaiser’s goals is to train future physicians to be more collaborative and to offer more data-driven care. The school will also offer students longitudinal clinical experiences beginning in their first year.
On their campus, there will be immersive tools such as:
- Collaboration boards
- Web conferencing
- Virtual reality
- Augmented reality
- 3D technology
There will also be a Simulation Center that will allow the students to learn in various real-world settings. The school is ready to move forward and will begin accepting applications this June.
