First-year fellow (PGY4) salary for the 2023-24 academic year is $74,756.
Fellowship positions include an extensive benefit package, which can be reviewed here.
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).
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.
- T32: Training of the Pediatric Physician-Scientist
- T32: Pediatric Infectious Diseases and Immunity Training Program
The Department of Pediatrics is also a Child Health Research Center site, offering NICHD K12 support to selected junior faculty.
