Kaiser Permanente - Southern California Permanente Medical Group
The philosophy and beliefs of Southern California Permanente Medical Group are rooted in the founding principles of the Kaiser Permanente integrated managed care partnership established in 1945 between physicians and the Kaiser Foundation. That word partnership is important. We are a physician-led partnership with a mission to transform the practice of medicine.
At SCPMG, we continue to empower our providers to lead. We understand that our success is made possible through the skills, ambition and leadership of our physicians and professional staff. We invest in our physicians and staff through continuing education, training, technology support and a nation-leading Physician Wellness program. And to further the legacy of our philosophy we are investing in the future: the Permanente Medical School scheduled to open in 2019 will train future generations of doctors to practice responsible, ethical, collaborative and fulfilling medicine.
We continually improve the health and wellness of our patients, our physicians, and our communities with our equation of responsible, ethical and effective care.
Join us as we continue to deliver The Answer to Healthcare in America.
About the area
Famous beaches, stretching from the Mexico border to North County. La Jolla and Torrey Pines. The great urban experience of downtown San Diego. The world-famous San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park. And easy access to Mexico itself. The San Diego service area is remarkably rich, offering some of Southern Californias best in cuisine, culture, entertainment, outdoor recreation, and housing options.
The San Diego service area is one the regions largest, with impressive geographical coverage, over 1,100 physicians, and about 25 satellite offices to complement the main medical center. Yet we have a singular, well-defined culture, grounded in three pillars that improve outcomes: maintaining physicians well-being and their original passion for medicine; keeping the workforce energized and cohesive; and ensuring patient engagement in their own overall health. This formula, along with our size, diversity, and depth of talent, helps the area keep its edge in new technology and clinical expertise. San Diego maintains a high level of integration and collaboration; physicians and new-hires alike know theyre not alone, that they have the personal support and clinical assistance of an entire team. Educational and research opportunities are actively offered and supported, with residency programs and fellowships, along with participation in clinical studies and trials.
