First-year fellow (PGY4) salary for the 2024-25 academic year is $76,999.
Fellowship positions include an extensive benefit package, which can be reviewed here.

Are there additional program benefits?

In addition to salary, each fellow receives at least $1,000 yearly for education-related expenditures (academic meetings, membership dues, books or subscriptions). The division covers the cost of the SHEA Online Training Course, IDSA ASP Curriculum, and the annual Pediatric ID In-Training Examination (SITE). 

Do I need to have grant funding for my fellowship or scholarly activity?

Fellowship salary is not dependent upon grant funding, though we provide strong mentoring in grant writing and encourage fellows to submit funding applications. External funding sources supporting fellows in our division include:

Institutional NIH T32 Training Grants
Washington University School of Medicine holds over 70 training grants; six of these are within the Department of Pediatrics.

Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society Foundation

Pediatric Scientist Development Program

The Department of Pediatrics is also a Child Health Research Center site, offering NICHD K12 support to selected junior faculty.
