Health Care

PArtner with a longtime leader in health sciences education.

Your Academic Partner in Education and Research

As health care grows more complex, even highly skilled clinicians need to gain new skills so that their organizations can thrive. We want to partner with you to help you gain a more ready workforce, close the skills gap on your team, meet the next generation of clinicians, and develop the leaders who will steer your organization into the future. 

Current Partnerships

CHI Health logoCHI Health is Creighton University's primary clinical affiliate. Our health sciences students get an outstanding experiential education in CHI Health facilities. This partnership has also opened the door to collaboration that combines academic and clinical expertise to accelerate research advances. 

In Arizona, the University is proud to be part of the Creighton University Arizona Health Education Alliance, which connects us with Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, Maricopa Integrated Health System (MIHS), and District Medical Group, Inc.

We also work with dozens of organizations across the U.S. and beyond to provide high-quality continuing medical education (CME) through our unique joint accreditation. See continuing education to learn more.

Leadership training and executive education

As an extension of our century-long commitment to health sciences education, we train clinical professionals and health care administrators to reach their potential as leaders. Top organizations including Children’s Physicians trust us to educate their teams.
