Resident Benefits

Surgical loupes 

The Department of Orthopaedics has a fund supported by alumni donations that provides loupes for all residents at the beginning of the R2 year.

Medical, dental, life and disability insurance  

OHSU provides a stipend that helps cover insurance.


OHSU provides approximately $200 per month that residents can use to purchase meals during OHSU rotations. Residents are given meal cards to cover their expenses on rotations at Legacy Emanuel Hospital and the VA Medical Center. On-call meals at the Shriner’s Hospital are free.
