University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program




We understand that for most applicants finding the “right residency” is dependent on non-quantifiable factors such as your “gut instincts,” “feeling at home,” the friendliness of the faculty and residents, the reputation of the residency, the quality of education, and the flexibility of the curriculum.

At the same time salary and benefits as offered by the residency are not unimportant. We are happy to answer any questions you might have about these quantifiable benefits. Stipends provided by University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center  for Full Time Residents are as follows:


Post Graduate Year Salaries as of July 1, 2017
1st Post Graduate Year $55,800
2nd Post Graduate Year $57,675
3rd Post Graduate Year $59,570
4th Post Graduate Year $62,000
