Contract/Letter of Offer
Once a fellowship position has been verbally extended and accepted, an official contract/letter of offer outlining all employment aspects will be mailed to the pending fellow. Contracts/letters of offer should be reviewed, signed, and returned by the specified deadline. Please note that the contract/letter of offer will include an addendum and supplement – both of which will also need to be reviewed, signed, and returned with the contract/letter of offer by the specified deadline.
The College of Medicine sets the annual stipend for fellow at each level. The majority of fellows will begin the program at a pay grade year (PGY) level 6 – however, extenuating circumstances may apply. A fellows specific pay grade will be reflected on their contract/letter of offer.
