Stipends and Benefits

Stipends

The stipends for interns and residents at Weill Medical College of Cornell University are consistent with other medical centers in the New York City area and undergo yearly adjustments to keep pace with cost of living increases. The salary for interns beginning in June 2016 is $60,582.00.

Housing

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital requires all surgical residents to reside in Hospital owned apartments that are located on York Avenue directly across from the Hospital. The hospital offers modern luxury apartments at a subsidized rate which is universally considered superior to that offered by other medical centers in the city.

Orientation

Orientation for 2016 will be held June 7, 2016 to June 15, 2016. Orientation is mandatory for all incoming Housestaff.

BLS, ACLS, PALS and ATLS certification is required prior to starting residency. Certification classes during orientation may be offered but there is no guarantee so certification prior to arriving at Cornell for Orientation and Residency is preferred. All four certifications are mandatory for general surgery residents. We strongly suggest that you take these courses post medical school and pre-residency training.

Educational Services

The medical center has extensive resources for the enhancement of graduate education. The Department of Surgery has kept pace with the advancement in modern technology and provides state of the art computer facilities for use by its resident staff. These facilities include bibliographic search, word-processing, database software, image scanners and slide production products designed to increase the efficiency of the surgical resident. All this is located in the Departmental Library which contains up to date collections of surgical journals and texts. A surgical operative log is provided from the ACGME.
