"Dr. Dalrymple's dedication to championing inclusivity and diversity in medical education and the health profession will inspire and empower our faculty, staff, and students to continue shaping the future of medical education and healthcare delivery," Holly Humphrey, MD, chair of the school of medicine's board of directors, said in the release.

The Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine, named in honor of Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente's late chair and CEO, opened in July 2020 with an inaugural class of 50 students. Dr. Dalrymple replaces founding dean and CEO Mark Schuster, MD, PhD. 

Dr. Schuster plans to step down at the end of June and will remain a professor in health systems science at Kaiser's medical school, according to the release.
