Four impressive partners. One exceptional Alliance

When Creighton University, Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, Valleywise Health, and District Medical Group, Inc. joined together to form the Creighton University Arizona Health Education Alliance, it became one of the state’s largest providers of Graduate Medical Education.

The Creighton University Arizona Health Education Alliance is strengthening current academic and clinical education programs in medicine and aims to eventually provide similar educational programs in nursing, pharmacy, and other health professions – a natural outgrowth of Creighton University’s commitment to interprofessional health education. Additional partnerships may join the Creighton University Arizona Health Education Alliance in the future.
