Stipends and Benefits
Stipends. Each stipend will be determined by the individual's degree and years of relevant postdoctoral experience. Fellows entering the program with no prior postdoctoral experience will start at approximately $46,200. Stipend levels increase with the number of years of postdoctoral experience. Annual increases may be given. Specialty competitive allowances are given for degrees in epidemiology or biostatistics, for J.D.s or M.D./Ph.D.s, and for board-certified M.D.s engaged in patient care. Stipends are subject to change depending on federal guidelines.
Health Insurance and Leave. Fellows will receive individual or family health insurance and paid federal holidays, annual leave, sick leave, and family leave.
Travel and Relocation. The NCI may cover the cost of relocation expenses up to a maximum of $3,000 (i.e., travel, shipment of household goods, and temporary storage, if necessary) for the fellow and his/her dependents for one move to the area where M.P.H. training will be pursued or to the Rockville, Maryland area. Reimbursement will be in accordance with prevailing government regulations. No return travel is authorized.
Expenses are provided for travel to meetings and training each year for each fellow, excluding the M.P.H. year.
