Salary & Benefits
Salary for a PL-4 fellow during 2016-2017 is $62,236 per year, plus benefits:
- Medical and dental insurance are available.
- Fellows may also be eligible for long term disability and life insurance.
Fellows have three weeks of vacation each calendar year. In order to insure full participation in rotations, fellows must take vacations during dedicated outpatient clinic months.
Faculty, senior fellows, and staff of the Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology are fully committed to the education of our fellows. As a reflection of this commitment, first year fellows are granted these two additional benefits:
- During the fall, fellows have approximately two weeks of dedicated study time immediately before the Pediatric Board Examination. The fellow's only clinical responsibility during this time is their weekly continuity clinic and advanced preparation for clinic with their assigned mentor.
- The University of Utah and the Department of Pediatrics maintains subscriptions to board review materials such as the PREP series. All these resources are available to fellows to facilitate study for General Pediatrics board certification.
