Determination of Stipends


A resident/fellow's annual stipend is stated in the letter of appointment. The stipend level is determined by counting the number of years after receiving an MD or DO (or equivalent degree) that have been spent in a training program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education that apply toward board certification in the current specialty. Residents may receive up to one additional stipend level for a chief resident year or non-accredited research year completed during their training at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics.
