Graduate Medical Education
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.
Needs-Based Relocation Reimbursement Program
GME trainees new to UCSF in ACGME and ABMS programs may be eligible for relocation reimbursement up to $1,800. Eligibility is determined through a needs assessment and proof of eligible expenses. Program Coordinators should submit the application to GME Finance through UCSF Box by September 28, 2016. Program Coordinators will be notified of eligible trainees the week of October 17, 2016.
License and USMLE Partial Reimbursement Program
Resident and fellows in ACGME and ABMS programs pay out of pocket their USMLE Step III, new license and renewal fees during their current appointment year. The fees may be eligible for partial reimbursement by their departments. When departments reimburse trainees for the fees, departments will then submit a quarterly funds transfer request form to GME finance through UCSF Box for reimbursement.
Meal Card Program
Residents and fellows who are assigned to a rotation with an average shift length of 12 hours or more at the Medical Center and Benioff Children’s Hospital UCSF may be eligible to receive a meal card in the amount of $135 per month. Each month, program coordinators will transfer funds to the eligible trainee’s meal card. Each month, GME Finance will process the transfer to departments based on actual meal money spent, up to the budgeted amount. Quarterly, program coordinators will zero out the meal cards.
The Blumberg Loan is an interest free loan that was established through the Office of Graduate Medical Education (OGME) to financially assist UCSF residents and clinical fellows. Residents and clinical fellows may request a loan from two months prior to start date through five months prior to current appointment end date. The loan may be in the amount of $1,200 or $2,400.
UC Office of the President determines resident and fellow salary. The salary scale includes minimum and maximum salaries and the housing allowance. New rates will be available in June, upon approval from UC Health.
