Professional Liability Insurance

Residents and fellows are provided professional liability coverage through the hospitals.

Other Benefits:

AT&T & Verizon both give 22% discounts on cellular service to residents. There is a free minivan ‘shuttle’ that runs between the two hospitals weekdays from 6:30am to 6:30 pm. This service is great as it is a free ride and helps to make the trip between the hospitals a bit quicker, easier, and you don’t have to give up your prime parking spot.
