Welcome New Residents and Fellows!

Happy Match Day! Welcome to the University of Michigan. We've got information for incoming house officers.

Contract Negotiations are Ongoing

You'll want to follow us on social media to stay informed. Links to our social accounts and information regarding our collective bargaining efforts can be found on the Negotiations Hub.

How much will you get paid?

We are currently negotiating a new collective bargaining agreement. To date, Michigan Medicine is not interested in an inflation-adjusted pay increase for residents and fellows. We will continue to fight hard for appropriate increases over the next few months. However, until we are able to reach an agreement, we cannot guarantee any increases in salary. Once an agreement has been reached you will be paid according to that new agreement. To see what house officers are making right now, check out the current salary schedule.

Assuming we have an agreement in place, in lieu of retirement matching, you will receive a lump sum in your November payroll equivalent to 10% of your salary.  Watch for more information in "News For House Officers" for setting up a retirement account.

Where will you live?

House? Condo? Apartment? Roommate? Check the HOA Housing website first!

If you are searching for a place to live the HOA runs our own Housing Website. Our site's audience is narrowly directed at Residents and Fellows. We aim to link up exiting and former House Officers with incoming and current ones. If you are not finding what you need there, be sure to check out the Housing Guide put together by Michigan Medicine, or perhaps take a look at the University's Off-campus Housing Website.

There may also be space available in U of M Graduate Housing. Residents and Fellows can inquire on the University's Graduate Housing Website.
