See all that the Neuroradiology Fellowship at MUSC has to offer.
The MUSC Diagnostic Neuroradiology Fellowship program provides a number of benefits to support our fellows.
$500 during 1 year fellowship which may be used for books, ABR fees, and non-presenting conference travel expenses.
An additional $1,500 per year is provided for 1st authors and presenters at national or selected regional conferences to help with travel and hotel expenses.
The following stipends are set for academic year July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018. Stipends will be re-evaluated in the fall of each year.
Annual compensation for fellows is in accordance with the compensation schedule that is in effect on July 1 of each year. Paychecks are received on the last working day of the month.
Annual Leave: Full-time fellows receive 15 days of compensated annual leave per year.
Sick Leave: Full-time fellows receive 15 days of sick leave per year. Sick leave can be used for personal illness, disability or injury, and for medical, dental or optical appointments.
Maternity Leave: A minimum of six (6) weeks of maternity leave (3 weeks annual leave; 3 weeks sick leave) per twelve month period. All six (6) weeks will be "paid time off" unless annual leave and/or sick leave were used previously during the twelve month period. In this instance, the six weeks of leave will still be granted but the previously paid time will be deducted so that the total "paid time off" in any academic year does not exceed six (6) weeks. The fellow may request additional "unpaid" time off beyond this initial six (6) weeks. This request must be approved by the Program Director in writing, in advance. If an ACGME RRC and/or the Specialty Board restricts time off to less than six (6) weeks in an academic year, the Program Director will defer to the allowable RRC and/or Specialty Board Eligibility requirement(s), thus, the fellow may be required to make up any time missed in accordance with these requirements.
Paternity Leave: Granted to the father at the time of birth or adoption in conjunction with the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). The father will be granted a maximum of six (6) weeks paid leave (3 weeks annual leave; 3 weeks sick leave) per twelve month period at the discretion of the program director. Paid leave will be reduced by leave used previously during the twelve month academic period. The fellow may request additional "unpaid" time off beyond this initial six (6) weeks. This request must be approved by the Program Director in writing, in advance. If an ACGME RRC and/or the Specialty Board restricts time off to less than six (6) weeks in an academic year, the Program Director will defer to the allowable RRC and/or Specialty Board eligibility requirement(s), thus, the fellow may be required to make up any time missed in accordance with these requirements.
Health Insurance: The fellow will receive health (including hospitalization) and dental at nominal cost. Dependents are covered at the fellow's expense.
Life Insurance: If the fellow participates in the South Carolina Retirement System, after one year of continuous service, the fellow's beneficiary is eligible to receive a sum equal to the fellow's annual salary. Additionally, if the fellow elects health coverage, an additional $3,000 is payable to the fellow's beneficiary. Optional life insurance is available at reasonable rates and the fellow can elect coverage up to 3 times the annual salary.
Disability Insurance: Basic disability insurance after one year of service only if health insurance is elected. Supplemental long term disability insurance is available at a competitive rate. Basic and supplemental long term disability insurance are portable and can be converted.
Professional Liability Coverage: Malpractice liability coverage is provided while performing duties and responsibilities in the program. The policy provides $1,200,000 per medical occurrence and the coverage will extend beyond the time in fellowship from incidents that occurred during their training (i.e., "tail coverage").
