Arizona's East Valley is the place to be.

Nestled in metro Phoenix’s East Valley between picturesque mountains – and beneath skies that are almost perpetually sunny – the Dignity Health East Valley Residency Program provides a world-class environment under which to learn, train, and flourish at the start of your career in medicine.


Why Arizona? (growth, climate, culture, economy, quality of life!)

Arizona is among the top four states for population growth and Maricopa County, among the top two growth counties in the country. Our residents can live in vibrant cities, rural landscapes, or areas that provide the best of both worlds. We enjoy a strong economy, a growing tech and biotech industry, and quality education. We have an eclectic geography, from snow-capped mountains to mighty canyons to flourishing desert life. We have an abundance of opportunities to explore, sightsee, and exercise in the fresh air provides a welcomed counterbalance to work and studies.

Why metro Phoenix and the East Valley?

Greater Phoenix offers a thriving economy and job market while its cost of living is below the national average. As a leader in biosciences, Phoenix adds thousands of new health care and tech jobs each year.

Outside of work, people who live in metro Phoenix embrace a thriving art scene, diverse museums, noteworthy and critically lauded restaurants and breweries, and four major sports teams.

The East Valley extends the cultural and entertainment opportunities of Phoenix in a prospering metropolitan area that is ideal for growing families. People who live in Chandler and Gilbert surrounding communities enjoy quality school systems, safe communities, housing options, and affordable costs of living. They embrace the parks, recreation, scenery, culture, and wildlife that comprise our landscape. More national businesses, tech firms, and light industry is also locating major hubs or headquarters here. Whether your off time shopping, dining, dancing, golfing, or hiking on one of thousands of trails in the East Valley, you won’t find a better setting to unwind from your work.
