We have a wide assortment of assessment instruments with a budget to purchase additional materials.  Our service has full administrative support, including for insurance authorizations, scheduling, and billing.  Residents work in a shared office/testing space, with full computer and telephone access.

During the first training year, the resident will spend time preparing for both the EPPP examination and the Massachusetts Jurisprudence Examination for state licensure, which will typically be taken by the midpoint of the first training year, depending on prior training experiences.  Achieving licensure will not impact the training structure of the program, but in addition to allowing for more complete billing of resident’s work, this increases the flexibility of training experiences and positions the resident well for subsequent employment.  Achievement of licensure will be accompanied by an appropriate salary bonus for the resident.

Salary information will be provided upon request from Dr. Dessureau, or during the interview.  The salary is also supplemented by a practice allowance that can be used for expenses such as membership in professional associations, conference fees, purchasing clinical texts, and/or EPPP study materials, and as noted, achievement of licensure will be recognized with a salary bonus.  This is a fully benefited position, which offers health, dental, and vision insurance, as well as options for life insurance, disability insurance, retirement savings accounts, and pre-tax reimbursement plans.  Residents also receive 3 weeks’ vacation, 3 personal days, 15 days of sick time, and 13 paid holidays per year.
