Employment, Salary and Benefits

Fellows are employed and credentialed solely by the Family Health Center of Worcester, and are paid a salary of $60,000 (MDs) or $56,000 (NPs or PAs).  They are full-time employees of FHCW and have standard health, dental, disability, and malpractice insurance coverage. They also receive five days of continuing medical education time and financial support, licensing reimbursement, sick and personal time, and four weeks of paid vacation time (further details about these benefits are available upon request).  Although the fellowship has an academic affiliation with UMass, fellows are not UMass employees nor are they credentialed to work at UMass Memorial Medical Center.
