In recent years, a number of new medical schools – both allopathic and osteopathic – have launched and still more are in preparation.
In 2017 Kaiser Permanente announced the appointment of Dr. Mark A. Schuster of Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital as the founding dean of the Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine. A renowned figure in pediatric, adolescent, and family health; family leave; obesity prevention; sexual and gender minority health; bullying; and quality of health care, Schuster pledged to build the new school “from the ground up” on evidence-based best practices. Three years later, the Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine welcomed its inaugural class.
In this INNOVATORS, Dr. Schuster answers the why, how, and so what of launching a new medical school.
