    Are fellowship members getting financially raped as hard as residents? Or do the administrators pay a fairer wage?

    Fellows usually make only slightly more than residents. The pay scale at most institutions is set from PGY-1 through PGY-8 with increases of 1 to 2 thousand dollars every year. So a first year resident (PGY-1) can start at $38,000 and a interventional cardiology fellow in his final year of fellowship (PGY-7) can make $48K-$50K. Many fellows do more moonlighting to supplement their income, depending on the specialty. Some can make upwards of 100K if their fellowship isn't too intense.

    I would agree that around $50K is fairly typical for Fellows - however, highly program specific. They generally only make a few more thousand a year than Chief Residents.

    I'll move this over to Rotations and Residencies for ya.
