Salary

Base salary for a medical toxicology fellow is based on post graduate year. Currently the PGY-4 salary is about $58,000 and PGY-5 is about $59,500. The medical toxicology fellows are required to work 5.3 hours per week (24 hours per month) and get clinical bonuses (average of about $12,000 / year for 3 shifts/month) as well as a potential profit sharing bonus at the end of the year. In addition to this, there is an academic bonus (average about $5000 / year) plus a $1700 merit award for presenting abstracts and publications, and $2500 in CME.

The total salary plus bonuses has averaged about $80,000 per year (plus CME, merit award, profit sharing, benefits) without additional ED shifts (doing 3 ED shifts per month). Additional ED shifts are available and are paid as overtime at approximately $100/hour with pay differential for evening, nights, and weekends. Clinical RVU-based bonuses are also paid on moonlighting shifts in the department.

With moonlighting ED shifts, the typical fellow has historically made approximately $110,000-130,000 per year while working about 6 shifts per month.


Benefits

A comprehensive benefits program is available for fellows. This includes health insurance, dental insurance, vision insurance, life insurance, disability insurance, and flexible spending accounts. OHSU donates an additional percentage of the fellow's salary to a retirement account.
