#86 – Dr. J. Mario Molina

In this episode, Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) President Sheldon Schuster interviews Dr. J. Mario Molina, the Founding Dean of the KGI School of Medicine.

Molina served for 20 years as the Chief Executive Officer of Molina Healthcare, a Fortune 500 company founded by his father in 1980 to provide healthcare to low-income individuals.

Molina’s vision for the KGI School of Medicine is to change the approach to healthcare education. The KGI School of Medicine will focus on the intersection of multicultural competency, population health research, and commercial innovation, as it prepares physicians with training and tools to improve the health status of communities where they practice.
