Postdoctoral Fellowship Training Program (PFTP)
Postdoctoral fellows may be hired by the University or one of its affiliated hospitals. Although the Consortium makes every effort to keep stipends uniform across all postdoctoral fellowships, individual hospital administrations set stipend levels. Postdoctoral fellowships which are primarily or exclusively research, versus those which are primarily or exclusively clinical, follow the same guidelines with regard to stipends.
For the 20-21 year we expect most hospital stipends to be $50,004 for first year and $50,376 for second year postdoctoral fellows and VA Medical Center stipends to be $50,941 for first year and $53,695 for second year postdoctoral fellows.
