Compensation and Benefits


Stipend levels are determined by the Barnes-Jewish Hospital / Washington University GME (Graduate Medical Education) Consortium on an annual basis.

The stipend level for a PGY-6 trainee is approximately $70,396 (plus benefits) for the 2019-2020 academic year.


As of February 1, 1999 per the BJH / Washington University GME Consortium, all newly named clinical fellows receive a memo of appointment and letter of agreement which is signed by the fellow and returned to the GME office. This letter serves as both an official offer letter by the university and the department and as an official acceptance of the terms of employment as outlined in the Washington University School of Medicine memo of appointment.


As per the BJH / Washington University GME Consortium, all clinical fellows throughout Washington University receive a standardized benefits package. Lanelle Coleman, representative in the Washington University Benefits Office, may be reached at 362-4927 regarding questions about these benefits.
