As part of the Creighton University Arizona Health Education Alliance, post-graduates may partake in an Internal Medicine Residency at Valleywise Health Medical Center. This program is structured to train 17 categorical residents per year as clinically competent physicians, each of whom will function and excel in any internal medicine setting.

During the 36-month training period, residents will rotate through every specialty of internal medicine, including neurology. Residents are part of an ambulatory practice team and see their own patients at Valleywise Health Family Health Centers located throughout Phoenix. Residents follow patients in and out of the hospital allowing for continuity of learning and patient care. Residents are also given a great deal of autonomy and opportunity for hands-on procedural experience commensurate with skills and training.

Residents of this program will rotate at both Valleywise Health Medical Center and St. Joseph’s Hospital & Medical Center. This program also works with the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix and the Mayo Clinic Scottsdale. Maricopa residents currently rotate at Mayo Clinic Scottsdale during their PGY-1 year with further opportunities as a senior resident as well.
