We are recruiting 3 residents distributed to the four-year program and the six-year programs for the year beginning July 1, 2012. The stipend for the first year of residency training during the year 2011-2012 is $48,198, with raises for each additional year of training. The stipend is not paid while the six year trainee is receiving course credit as a medical student unless the credit is for clinical rotations in oral and maxillofacial surgery or anesthesia. In the latter situation, the trainee will receive a stipend and medical school credit. Up to six months of the fourth year of medical school is devoted to the OMS service and, therefore, the resident will receive a stipend for up to 6 months of the fourth year of medical school. The six-year trainee is responsible for the last three years of Vanderbilt Medical School tuition. Numerous forms of financial assistance are available. All residents in the OMS-MD program receive assistance with medical school tuition through department-sponsored scholarships for at least the first year of the program (second year of medical school). We encourage you to review the Vanderbilt School of Medicine website for additional information on tuition and financial aid. The four-year trainee receives a stipend continuously for four years and has no tuition responsibility.
