WUH Resident Benefits Highlights
You will find that the WUH benefits policy is competitive with that of other institutions. The following is a summary of the benefits afforded to you as a WUH radiology resident:
Compensation Effective July 1, 2015
Winthrop provides its house staff with subsidized housing in a number of apartment complexes and houses in close proximity to the hospital. Assignment of Winthrop housing is made by the Housing Coordinator, Jeanne Schiek, based on the individual housing needs of the residents. If the Housing Coordinator determines that an individual resident’s housing needs cannot be accommodated in Winthrop housing, a live-off allowance may be offered to the resident in lieu of housing. Studios range from $486.00 – $546.00, one bedrooms from $574.00 - $607.00, two bedrooms $724.00 and houses from $724.00 to $891.00.

Residents are entitled to a $700 yearly allowance which can be spent on a variety of educational resources, including books, computer equipment, conferences, etc. In addition, residents are excused from work and are reimbursed to attend conferences at which they are presenting research.
