We understand that living in Boston is expensive…our hospitals want to provide financial assistance to residents with significant financial challenges who might not otherwise be able to train here.

We are delighted to announce a new pilot program that will provide cash stipends (in addition to standard PGY-level salary) to physicians-in-training who match to our residency programs in 2020 and were approved for the AAMC’s “Fee Assistance Program (FAP)” as an AMCAS applicant, with their confirmation of continuing financial need.

The total stipend amount of $30,000 will be distributed in 3 installments of $10,000 at the beginning of each academic year for the first 3 years of the residency program.
