In 2019, Kaiser Permanente will be opening a Medical School located in Southern California. Currently, medical leaders are convening to put the finishing touches on an academically advanced curriculum incorporating total health for the incoming Fall 2019 class.
Part of total health is improving the environment and the support systems around you. This is especially important for medical students who often tend to become burned out from their academic and career demands. Improper environments from academics can have a negative impact on a persons’ physical and mental health both short-term and long-term. Directors of the Kaiser Permanente Medical School are aware of the health impacts medical students often face and are working towards reversing these statistics.
This past April, the directors of the Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine established a plan to combat student burn-out. To learn more about their accomplishments, please click here!
