Diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging

Dignity Health East Valley Residency pledge on diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging

Our residency program strives for a culture in which the values of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging are infused into all of our clinical, teaching and research activities.

We hope to foster a culturally rich, diverse and welcoming learning environment in which trainees learn to provide individualized care to patients with diverse ethnic, racial and socioeconomic backgrounds across the gender spectrum.

We are working hard to attract learners and faculty who want to contribute to this goal, and who are reflective of the community and the world that we serve.

We embrace our diverse community and celebrate our differences

Diversity and inclusion are central to our mission to serve everyone in our community. Dignity Health’s core values – compassion, inclusion, integrity, excellence, collaboration, stewardship, justice, and excellence – champion a diverse, accepting, and welcoming healing environment. At Dignity Health, we embrace our diverse community and celebrate our differences. We respect human dignity in every interaction with each other and with the individuals and communities we serve.
