Please follow this link to the Graduate Medical Education office to learn more about our competitive salary, as well as just some of the covered benefits Henry Ford residents enjoy.
In addition to the above base salary and benefits, Henry Ford residents have a unique opportunity to supplement their incomes while at the same time training to become independent radiologists. After passing an oral ER radiology examination administered by the Henry Ford faculty in March of the PGY-2 year, residents begin taking in-house call covering evenings and weekends. These shifts are considered internal moonlighting, providing our residents the opportunity to earn extra money. This also provides for greater flexibility in scheduling call shifts. Similar internal moonlighting is available beginning in the PGY-3 year for residents to hone their skills with image-guided procedures during the day on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
External moonlighting opportunities are available for PGY-5 residents with residents providing diagnostic imaging interpretation at one of our high volume sister hospitals. In addition to providing additional compensation, these shifts offer an excellent opportunity to learn how to operate in an environment that is similar to a private practice radiology group.
Residents receive a total of 22 days of paid time off per year. Vacation may be taken in increments of half or full days.
Maternity leave currently runs up to six weeks. Three days of paternity leave are also provided.
Being a first author on a research project accepted at a national conference allows residents to travel to the conference and receive up to $1500 for registration, travel, lodging and personal expenses associated with the conference.
Senior residents are allowed an additional 5 non-participant days to travel to conferences. Residents are responsible for their own expenses on these trips however.
