Kaiser Permanente will soon be teaching its integrated health care model with an emphasis on patient care to medical students.

The Oakland-based health care giant’s Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine said Tuesday it received its preliminary accreditation and will start accepting applications this summer for the inaugural class, which will begin in 2020. Located in Pasadena, the school will be tuition-free for admitted classes during the first five years. Following that, the annual tuition of about $55,000 will be heavily subsidized by need-based financial aid, according to the New York Times.
