Winter 1968

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2003 - Summer


“Alumni and particularly former house staff will be pleased to learn that the stipends for interns and residents at Yale-New Haven Hospital were increased January 1, 1968, and there will be a further increase effective July 1. The January change raised interns from $4,000 to $5,000 per year; new stipends for residents range from $5,500 to $8,000 per year.

“For the 1968-1969 house staff year beginning in July, interns will receive $6,000; assistant residents, first year—$6,600, second year—$7,200, third year—$7,800; fourth year residents, $8,400; and chief residents, $9,100.

“The cost of a medical education, however, continues to rise along with the general inflationary spiral. The present $1,900 annual tuition at the Yale School of Medicine will increase to $2,150 as of September, 1968. This is equal to the tuition now charged at many other private medical schools and, incidentally, is less than the 1968 tuition at some schools. The total cost for attendance for four academic years at a privately supported medical school is estimated to be at least $16,000.”
