Applications are invited for the positions listed above in the Office of the Dean, Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine (KPSOM) located in Pasadena, California.

The Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine has initiated a nationwide search for accomplished and creative educators and scholars to serve as founding members of the Dean’s Cabinet. Each executive will report directly to Mark A. Schuster, MD, PhD, Founding Dean and CEO. These are extraordinary opportunities for academic leaders to serve in key roles at a unique, new medical school designed to offer much more than a conventional medical education. The KPSOM is committed to building a leadership team with exceptional diversity, experience, and talent. The KPSOM is calling on visionary leaders and experts in medical education to help shape the future of medical education and health care.

The KPSOM will not only provide a future-facing education, but also hands-on experience, advanced team training, and critically relevant knowledge that comes directly from the Kaiser Permanente care delivery system. KPSOM faculty will teach advanced skills in evidence-based medicine, decision-making, teamwork, use of technology, communication, and cultural humility. The innovative four-year medical curriculum will incorporate small group, case-based learning; flipped classrooms; augmented reality anatomy; spiraling, organ system-based courses; longitudinal integrated clerkships; and other effective teaching technologies and simulations. Important concepts of diversity and inclusion, lifestyle medicine, leadership and innovation, and inter-professionalism will be integrated throughout the curriculum. The educational program will prepare KPSOM students to become lifelong learners as physicians, and will address prevention, population health, data analytics, well-being, and resilience for the total health of patients, communities, and physicians themselves. This unparalleled approach will train physicians who are prepared to face the health challenges of society and help our nation’s diverse communities thrive.

The successful applicants will be exceptional leaders in academic medicine, with the demonstrated skills and values needed to successfully lead in a novel educational enterprise with a social mission. They will exhibit the commitment to excellence and innovation that typifies the highest standards of leadership in academic medicine.

Applicants may forward a curriculum vitae and brief statement of interest electronically to [email protected]  or by mail to John Ferry, MD, MBA, Senior Client Partner, Korn Ferry, One International Place, Boston, MA  02110.
