Kaiser Permanente has been a loyal partner of Morehouse School of Medicine for most of the Institution’s lifetime. Its continued support has enabled MSM to provide scholarships, grow educational programs, expand our clinical outreach and develop innovative research programs.

The UHSA is a strategic response to the growing need for health care professionals in underserved urban and rural communities across Georgia, designed to add highly-skilled professionals and diversify the work pool. In addition, Kaiser Permanente’s strategic giving has helped empower the Satcher Health Leadership Institute to become a preeminent health leadership institute and a force in creating global health equity. Kaiser Permanente has also helped our students thrive through their continued support of scholarships. Thanks to Kaiser, our medical students can make their dreams of becoming a physician a reality.
