Learn to teach, and teach to learn

For those who aspire to train the next generation of clinicians, a career as a Permanente physician offers a wide range of opportunities. We continually learn throughout our careers — and much of that learning is achieved through teaching, training, and providing plenty of opportunities to practice to new physicians.

We offer extensive graduate medical education curriculum and rotations, which prepares new and aspiring Permanente physicians to care and improve the health of their patients and the communities they will serve.

To support this hands-on education, we’ve established the infrastructure, support, and time that our mentors require, because new physicians need undivided, personalized attention to build a solid foundation in our unique approach to integrated care delivery. That’s why our long-established residency and fellowship programs are among the most in-demand in the nation.

In 2020, we launched the Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine, which provides a modern medical education, often taught by Permanente physicians, and a curriculum that reflects the integrated approach to care delivery that’s embodied by Permanente Medicine.

The School of Medicine employs a small-group, case-based medical curriculum that embraces all dimensions of diversity and values students’ well-being. The school aims to prepare future physicians to become collaborative leaders who are committed to prevention, fluent in evidence-based care, and adept at addressing the needs of underserved patients and communities.

We value those medical professionals who want to share their knowledge and skill with others. If you wish to teach medicine in a completely supportive setting, a Permanente Medical Group is the place to practice.
