Fellow Funding and Benefits

Please note: Clinical fellows must meet the requirements for full (unlimited) licensure in Massachusetts. 


Malpractice premiums are fully paid by Mass. Eye and Ear.

Health Insurance
Family health insurance will be provided through the benefits program of Massachusetts Eye and Ear Associates. The fellow will need to contribute to this benefit as well, according to Mass. Eye and Ear guidelines. 

Vacation/Sick leave
Each fellow is allowed three weeks (15 work days) per year. All vacation time must be planned in advance and be pre-approved by the fellowship director. 

Attendance and participation at appropriate meetings is encouraged. Each fellow is required to attend one meeting per year although many attend more than one. Fellows get one week (five work days) to attend meetings. Fellows are reimbursed for travel to meetings up to $1,500 per academic year.
