Trainees will receive a stipend of $60,000 for the 12-month program.
Trainees in graduate medical education programs sponsored by Nationwide Children’s Hospital are employees of the hospital and as such are eligible for the same benefits that other full time staff receive – with the exception of paid time off, as well as some additional perks that are outlined below:
Paid Time Off/Vacation
Two weeks of vacation per academic year. A week is 5 weekdays + 2 weekend days.
14 days/equivalent of two weeks of sick leave for duration of program.
The hospital recognizes the following as paid holidays:
New Year’s Day
Trainees may be required to work some holidays, dependent on patient care responsibilities.
Professional Conference Funding
Trainees in good standing are encouraged to attend professional conferences. Programs receive funding annually for trainees to attend and present at conferences. Funds may be used toward conference fees, hotel, travel and meals. Final decisions on conference funds are made by the Program Director.
Trainees are eligible to receive ACLS and/or PALS certification and/or recertification paid by program.
Memberships for some professional organizations (e.g. Association of Physician Assistants in Psychiatry) are covered by the program.
