Salary & Benefits


For the 2023–24 academic year, the annual salary for an incoming fellow at the PGY4 level is $88,471 to accommodate a cost-of-living adjustment and a housing stipend.

Salaries are not determined by the UC San Diego Geriatrics Fellowship Program. The base salary scales for House Officers are established by the University Office of the President. At UCSD Medical Center, salaries for represented House Officers are collectively bargained by UCSD and the San Diego House Officer Association.


Health and dental insurance are provided, along with disability insurance. Fellows receive 4 weeks ("20 working days") paid vacation and 12 days paid sick leave.

Other Support

Fellows receive a copy of the Geriatrics Review Syllabus. In addition, participating fellows have all expenses paid to attend and present at the annual American Geriatrics Society conference. Often support is also available for attendance at additional conferences (based on interests of individual fellows).
