Information for Applicants
The salary is $40,000 ($42,000 the second year). Fellows are employees of the University of Massachusetts Medical School and receive the same benefits package as medical residents. This includes three weeks vacation, low cost individual or family health plan, disability and life insurance. Applications will be accepted until January 1st or until the position is filled, whichever comes first. Early submission improves a candidate’s chances. Interviews will be in January 2014. A few candidates will be selected for on-site interviews and if you are selected you are highly encouraged to come on-site.
The start date is July 1 though this can be delayed if the candidate we select is not available until September. The fellow will be invited to an orientation program developed for the incoming medical residents and first year post-doctoral fellow to orient them to the University of Massachusetts, the training environment, expectations and policies and procedures. This occurs the last week of June. The month of July is largely reserved for a variety of orientation activities. There are presently post-doctoral fellows based at each of the four health centers.
