Creighton University School of Medicine has formed an alliance with Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center and Maricopa Integrated Health System (MIHS) to train 325 graduate medical education (GME) residents at the two Arizona hospitals.
The alliance oversees the GME programs for St. Joseph’s and MIHS, as well as District Medical Group, the physician group that works at MIHS.
Residents will get a better experience through the alliance. Bringing these two programs together will provide the students with a more diverse training experience. Additionally, plans call for developing subspecialty training programs that are lacking in the Phoenix area.
