All Fellows are provided with individual health insurance, dental insurance, a term-life insurance policy, and disability coverage. Fellows may also elect to contribute to a pre-tax voluntary retirement fund (403-b). On-site day care facilities are available to Fellows with children. Fellows are also eligible for paid maternity, paternity, and parental leave.
Johns Hopkins also recognizes that the intensity of a training program can be a time of high stress to fellows and their families. Assistance in dealing with the many issues related to work or personal life can be obtained through the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program, a free and confidential referral service.
There is a strong sense of collegiality and family within the Division. Fellows are an integral part of our divisional activities. The activities of the Fellows are structured mainly by their educational needs, and not by the service needs of the Division.
Currently our program participates in the ERAS application program, and accepts eight Fellows through the National Resident Matching Program. We remain committed to the highest quality of training for the Fellows in our program.
