Program Benefits

Vacation

Residents are provided 4 weeks of vacation per academic year. In addition, residents are provided one additional block of 4-5 days off during the December holidays (coinciding with Christmas or New Years).

House Officer Association (HOA)

The University of Michigan House Officer Association (HOA) is a resident run organization that strives to both improve the working conditions for house officers and advance patient care. The HOA collectively bargains for competitive resident salaries and benefits including disability coverage, mental health programs, as well as dental and medical insurance.  Additional information may be obtained at their website.

Salary

Resident salaries are negotiated by the HOA and are consistent across the institution. Our salaries are very competitive and allow residents flexibility to maintain financial independence. In addition, residents are provided an additional “lump sum” payment of approximately 7% of the annual salary to encourage savings, although these funds may be used in any manner the resident wishes. Finally, residents are given additional compensation if they are scheduled to work on major holidays or on their birthdays.
