Resident Benefits

For a detailed description of resident stipends and benefits, please visit the Office of Graduate Medical Education (GME) website at

In addition to the benefits described on the GME site, new residents are provided with white lab coats and a pager during on-boarding.  The department distributes a copy of Cumming's Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery to the in-coming PGY-1 class.  All residents are provided funds for the purchase of loupes at the end of their PGY-1 year.  

The KUMC computer network provides dedicated email and Internet service, as well as access to the Dyke's Library medical literature database. Facilities for image analysis and graphics are supplemented by extensive multimedia facilities, including a large format poster printer in the MRRC.

Residents are encouraged to participate in our annual winter meeting, which includes a continuing medical education program and fun activities for both faculty and residents.  In even years, the winter meeting is held at Copper Mountain in Colorado.  In odd years, the winter meeting is held in Arizona.

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.

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.
