Careers After Residency


The journey after St. Joseph's Family Medicine Residency Program continues in many different directions for our residents. Due to the tremendous population growth in Phoenix and the surrounding area, more than half of graduates make Phoenix their home and preferred practice location. Attractive employment opportunities both in private practice and hospital-sponsored clinics are plentiful and available for those who choose to stay in the Valley of the Sun.

Primary Care Physician Retention Program

St. Joseph’s has developed a Primary Care Physician Retention Program that can assist graduates in both locating and starting practices and provide them with income guarantees and attractive start up financial assistance. St. Joseph's Medical Group is the employed physician group at St. Joseph’s and works closely with the Family Medicine Residency Program to help residents pursue their career at St. Joseph’s.

Residents Are Prepared For Any Medical Setting

Some graduates have chosen to continue their training by pursuing fellowships in Sports Medicine, Hospice and Palliative Care or Geriatrics. Residents frequently enter the Military, serving as a commissioned officer in the United States Army, Air force, Marines, or Navy. Several of our graduates have chosen exciting careers in rural locations in such states as AZ, CA, ID, NM and TX. Residents who choose to provide maternity care in their practice feel confident in the training they have received at St. Joseph’s.

Whatever their choice of practice location, our residents feel ready, prepared and competent to move into any setting.
