Dear Visitor,

On behalf of our Board of Directors, I am happy to welcome you to the Kaiser Permanente School of Allied Health Sciences’ (KPSAHS) website. Whether you are visiting as a prospective student or an alumni, here you will find information about our degree programs, short courses and our institution. Please take a moment now to learn more about us.

Together, Kaiser Permanente, The Permanente Medical Group, and KPSAHS, share a commitment to providing state-of-the-art care delivery and to developing health care professionals. This commitment continues today as we educate the next generation of health care practitioners, leaders ready to take their place as providers of high-quality health care.

In addition to receiving a world class education, our students are an active part of the medical center environment. Students undertake hands-on clinical training at both Kaiser Permanente medical centers and other health care systems across the Northern California region. Kaiser Permanente School of Allied Health Sciences has more than 160 clinical instructors at 18 medical centers working side by side with our students, modeling diligence and service in patient care.

Since our modest beginning in 1989, Kaiser Permanente School of Allied Health Sciences has grown into a premier educational institution for students, faculty, staff, and the communities we serve. After preparing hundreds of diverse students for health sciences careers, in 2015 we achieved WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) Regional Accreditation, thus paving the way for Bachelor of Science degrees and unparalleled academic and clinical success.

I encourage you to explore our website and discover for yourself the benefits of a Kaiser Permanente School of Allied Health Sciences education. Join us in our mission to advance health care and improve lives. We hope to inspire you to become an active, successful leader in the health care community.

James Fitzgibbon
