Does anyone here know the benefits Tufts has. When I try to check on their IM website, it leads me to a dead link. And when I try to google Tufts GME, I'm not getting anywhere in terms of finding the benefits.

If anyone knows, I'd appreciate it, particulary specifics re: covered health insurance, disability, if parking/MBTA passes are reimbursed/covered and if they provide and discount/coverage for exercise at their facilities.

Thanks in advance.

If Tufts has completed their survey, you may get answers to at least a few of those questions on FREIDA.

The benefits page though seems to list employee benefits not necessarily house staff benefits. Are these one and the same?

I can't tell if they are going to deduct more off salary for health insurance as it states "contributions are made on a pre-tax basis." Does this apply to employees only or to everyone etc.
