House Officer Association (HOA)
The University of Michigan House Officer Association (HOA) is a resident run organization that strives to both improve the working conditions for house officers and advance patient care. The HOA collectively bargains for competitive resident salaries and benefits including disability coverage, mental health programs, as well as dental and medical insurance. Additional information may be obtained at their website.
The University of Michigan offers highly competitive salaries and tremendous benefits to our residents/fellows. An overview of salary, benefits and employment eligibility is available on the GME Office website, under “Prospective Residents/Fellows”. Finally, residents are given additional compensation if they are scheduled to work on major holidays or on their birthdays.
