Message from the Executive Director

Residents and Fellows Move to Creighton Employment

Erica Brown

I am pleased to share that effective July 1, 2021, more than 300 residents and fellows training under Alliance programs in Phoenix, will be employed by Creighton University. A single, University employer will unite house staff under standardized salaries, benefit plans, and employment policies. It also will improve training opportunities and provide a strong tie to Creighton’s excellent academic reputation.

There are several work groups in development to support a successful transition to Creighton as your new employer. As some of the timelines and action items related to the transition are solidified, they will be shared with you. In addition, several town halls will be held later this year to share up-to-date information and answer any questions you may have.  

I understand that change can be unsettling, but we are committed to providing frequent and transparent communication to help make the transition as smooth as possible.

We look forward to all the benefits this will have for our Alliance residents and their educational training experience.

Warm regards,
Erica Brown
Executive Director
