Salary & Benefits
We understand that for most applicants finding the right residency is dependent on non-quantifiable factors such as your "gut instincts," "feeling at home," the friendliness of the faculty and residents, the reputation of the residency, the quality of education and the flexibility of the curriculum.
At the same time salary and benefits as offered by the residency are not unimportant. We are happy to answer any questions you might have about these quantifiable benefits.
The Graduate Medical Education office maintains a comprehensive detailed list of up-to-date resident benefits and salary information.

Infertility insurance: What coverage exists for physician trainees?
For physician trainees, infertility insurance coverage is not universal, policies are not transparent, and treatment for male factor infertility is often omitted. UH Urology staff members and residency graduate, Wade Muncey, contributed to a PubMed study that analyzed the insurance policies of 24 institutions for coverage of diagnosis and treatment, shared costs, and maximum lifetime coverage for infertility care.
