Akron Children's Hospital's pediatric psychology fellowship program offers:
Effective July 1, 2014
Year One -- $54,500
Year Two -- $56,500
All house officers are granted 3 weeks of vacation or 15 customary working days.
Fellows are entitled to 5 days of conference time each year for medical conventions and courses outside the hospital.
Fellows are provided $1,200 annually for use toward medical-related journals or books, conferences, and license renewals.
The Department of Pediatrics encourages and supports investigator-initiated research by subspecialty fellows. Therefore, the Department supports research-related travel when the fellow is in good academic and professional standing, and when prior written approval of the program director is documented. All hospital policies relating to travel must be followed.
Although the policy relates to presentation at a national forum, requests for support for presentation at a regional forum are considered on a case-by-case basis.
Fellows, and their dependents, are eligible to enroll in the hospital’s health, dental, and vision insurance programs. Costs are shared between the fellow and the hospital.
Short- and long-term disability benefits are provided. In addition, the hospital provides Group Term Life Insurance and dependent life insurance is available.
Professional liability insurance is provided for each fellow by the hospital.
A key access card for convenient parking is provided at no charge.
One embroidered lab coat is provided, if desired.
The hospital provides reimbursement for initial relocation expenses, up to $1,000, subject to current tax laws.
We rely on your generosity to provide quality medical care to every child who needs us.
