You are paid 26.1 times per year rather than twice a month (annual salary divided by 26.1, not 24).
You will receive your FIRST paycheck on 7/20/18 covering 7/1-7/12. Your first FULL paycheck will be received on 8/3/18, and then every 2 weeks afterwards.
All residents and fellows must obtain a USF ID badge available on campus at the Card Center, which is located in the Student Services Building, SVC 1032.

It is important to keep your address updated. Below are some areas where an up-to-date address is important.

Program – Inform your program of any address changes. In addition, you can update your address in New Innovations. Once logged into New Innovations, select My Profile>My Personnel Record>Edit My Information.

Florida Board of Medicine – if you have a full Florida medical license it is important the Board of Medicine has your current address. Click HERE to learn how to update your address with them.

USF HR/Payroll – Current residents and fellows can update their address and other information through GEMS Self-Service – GEMS LOG-IN (see instructions for Change Address_How To). Additionally, you can notify the Payroll Office at (813) 974-7955. This is especially important once you have graduated to ensure you will receive your W-2 the following year. 

There are typically two "Early Bird" check-ins for incoming residents/fellows to complete paperwork, obtain their ID badge, campus parking, HR forms, etc., which takes 1-2 hours. We will also be holding a mandatory Orientation session on June 29, 2018 that will last approximately 4 hours.
The ACGME requires that the sponsoring institutions (hospitals) make available adequate food facilities that are accessible to the residents/fellows during the assigned duty hours. Residents/Fellows who are assigned to take in-hospital call will receive an allotment for meals at the affiliate institutions. This service is a privilege, not a requirement of the affiliated hospitals. Hospital-specific requirements are detailed in the Continued Appointment Requirement section of the Housestaff Handbook. Please note that meal gratuities are for the resident/fellow only and are not to be extended to other individuals. Abuse of meal privileges could result in their loss.
As a resident and/or fellow at the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine, you have access to journals, books, and databases through the Shimberg Health Sciences Library.
