Stipend and Benefits


The stipend is highly competitive based on market analysis. It changes yearly, so please contact Heather Meissen ( or Aimee Abide ( for additional information.


Residents receive full employee benefits as well as paid time off and extended illness.

Conference Time:

Each resident may take three conference days, in addition to their paid time off for any national conference. In addition, residents are encouraged to attend any and all conferences within Emory Healthcare, however, conference time should not interfere with patient care responsibilities. Conference topics should be specific to the current rotation, ie. when rotating through the Neuro ICU, a brain death lecture is appropriate to attend, however a lecture on surgical complications of a whipple may be less appropriate.

Time off:

Time off must be approved by both program directors, as well as the clinical mentor.
