Program Administrator Financial Resources

The Office of Graduate Medical Education assists program administators with finance matters related to UCSF trainees. In addition to facilitating health insurance recharge, OGME also runs several programs to aid program administrators with trainee reimbursement.

Health Insurance Recharge

Resident and fellows enroll in insurance plans by working with their program coordinators. The GME finance unit manages the monthly recharge process. Each month (before the 3rd Friday of the month), program coordinators will submit an excel health insurance template to GME finance to process the recharge.
