Employment, Salary and Benefits


Fellows are employed and credentialed solely by the health center where they perform their clinical work and are paid a salary consistent with the UMass GME pay scale for PGY-4. They are full-time employees of their health center 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. 

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. They are eligible for and encouraged to seek faculty appointment through the UMass Department of Family Medicine and Community Health.
