A full range of benefits including medical, dental, vision, life, disability and malpractice insurance are provided to our Yale pediatric housestaff.

  • PGY2 - $61,900
  • PGY3 - $65,100

The Department of Pediatrics recognizes that residency is an educational process requiring individuals to have opportunities for adequate rest, outside endeavors, and family commitments. For that reason, we have built the following special features into our pediatric residency program.

Holiday Break

In addition to the regularly scheduled vacation throughout the year, all members of the housestaff have an additional four days of vacation time provided either during the Jewish holidays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year's. This allows for our housestaff to visit with family and friends, plan for travel or simply enjoy special times at home without the responsibilities of being on call.

Intern Retreat

In the fall of each year, the intern class of the Pediatric, Med/Peds, and Psych/Peds programs retreat to the Hole In the Wall Gang Camp for a wonderful weekend of camaraderie, discussion and fun. All spouses, significant others and family members are invited to participate.
