Resident Benefits

Residents at the University of Kansas receive a competitive stipend, including annual raises and cost of living increases.

Kansas City offers a relatively low cost of living.  A majority of our current residens have been able to purchase their own homes.  Public schools in Johnson County, KS consistently rank among the best in the nation.

The Department provides each new resident the Cumming's text book of Otolaryngology and a subscription to Archives of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.  White coats and otoscopes are also provided.  The cost of parking at KUMC, medical licenses, and gym membership to Kirmayer Fitness Center are covered by KU Graduate Medical Education.  Residents are also provided funds during their PGY-2 year to purchase surgical loupes.

Residents are provided a work station at KUMC in the resident work room with access to computer facilities for word processing, spreadsheets, statistical analysis, and reference retrieval.  Image analysis and graphic services are supplemented by extensive multimedia facilities, including a large format poster printer.

Resident wellness is a priority for our department and the GME office.  As part of the wellness program, all residents receive a membership to Kirmayer Gym on the main University of Kansas Medical Center campus.

Residents at Kirmayer Gym

We welcome residents into our department family and encourage networking with faculty, residents, staff, and medical students. At the end of every medical student rotation, our residents and rotating medical students celebrate the learning experience.
