by Howard Fine
A planned medical school at the Claremont Colleges has named Mario Molina, former longtime chief executive of Molina Healthcare Inc., as its founding dean, according to an announcement from the Keck Graduate Institute.
The medical school, which will be part of the Keck Graduate Institute for the study of life sciences at the Claremont Colleges, was announced a year ago and is still in the formation stage.
Once accredited and open, the KGI School of Medicine will seek to train future physicians to meet the increasing demand for primary care doctors in the Southern California market. The school will be located on the KGI campus in Claremont, just west of the main cluster of the five undergraduate Claremont Colleges.
