Calls for reform in modern medical education abound (Cooke et al. 2010, Frenk et al. 2010; Lucey 2013). The complexity of our health care system requires physicians to lead interprofessional teams and improve quality, safety, and care experience while reducing cost. As technology and research evolve, physicians must integrate foundational science in their clinical practice. Finally, resilience and wellness are necessary to maintain a healthy workforce. The model of medical education must adapt to meet these needs; high quality health care delivery systems have immense potential in this realm.

Kaiser Permanente, with 12 million members, 38 hospitals, and nearly 20,000 Permanente physicians, is the largest private integrated delivery system in the United States and a model of delivery system transformation and quality of care. Kaiser Permanente also has seventy years of experience in graduate medical education, with over forty residencies and fellowships, and academic partnerships with more than a dozen medical schools nationwide.

Grounded in the sciences of learning, including interleaving, spaced learning and workplace learning, the new Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine aims to transform medical education through integration of foundational, clinical and health systems sciences. By providing an experiential learning structure for students in prevention, population health, patient-centeredness, quality improvement, health equity and evidence-based clinical and outcomes-focused research, students will be well-equipped to address 21st century health care challenges. This session will review the founding of the Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine.
