Please follow this link to the Graduate Medical Education office to learn more about our competitive salary, as well as some of the covered benefits Henry Ford residents enjoy.


In addition to the above base salary and benefits, Henry Ford radiology residents have a unique opportunity to supplement their incomes while at the same time training to become independent radiologists. After passing an oral ER radiology examination administered by the Henry Ford faculty in spring of the PGY-2 year, residents begin taking in-house call covering evenings and weekends. These shifts are considered internal moonlighting, providing our residents the opportunity to earn extra money. This also provides for greater flexibility in scheduling call shifts. Similar internal moonlighting is available beginning in the PGY-3 year for residents to hone their skills with image-guided procedures during the day on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

External moonlighting opportunities are available for PGY-5 residents with residents providing diagnostic imaging interpretation at one of our high volume associated hospitals. In addition to providing additional compensation, these shifts offer an excellent opportunity to learn how to operate in an environment that is similar to a private practice radiology group.


Residents receive a total of 22 days of paid time off per year. Vacation may be taken in increments of half or full days.

Henry Ford Health will pay house officers 100% of their salary for up to 6 weeks of parental or caregiver leave. Birthing parents are also able to take an additional paid medical leave of absence, resulting in up to 12 weeks of paid parental leave.


Being a first author on a research project accepted at a national conference allows residents to travel to the conference and receive up to $1500 for registration, travel, lodging and personal expenses associated with the conference. Up to 8 conference participatory days can be taken per academic year.

Senior residents are allowed 5 non-participant days to travel to conferences. Residents are allowed to use their professional development funds to cover costs on these trips.

Professional Development Fund

Discretionary funds are available for residents which can be used to help defray costs associated with USMLE Step 3, books, board preparatory course, or an iPad. These funds are direct deposited at the beginning of the academic year. Learn more about our professional development fund from the Office of Graduate Medical Education.

All PGY-2 and above residents are provided with complimentary subscriptions to StatDx and RadPrimer qBank (value of $969/year).


All R3 (PGY-4) residents virtually attend the Radiologic-Pathologic course, which is paid for by the department.


Residents have free access to multiple parking lots located immediately adjacent to the hospital for easy access.


$1500 is provided yearly for radiology residents to buy meals in the Henry Ford cafeteria or at the in-hospital Papa Joe’s market, Subway Restaurant, or Biggby Coffee.


A dedicated radiology residency lounge is available and includes tables, sofas, computer workstations, and a large LED television. A large refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker are also located in the lounge. Residents are afforded 30 minutes of dedicated lunch time every day.

Personal lockers are provided right outside the lounge to store personal belongings as needed.

A private, locked room is available for nursing mothers.


Discounted apartments are available specifically for Henry Ford residents at a complex immediately adjacent to the hospital.


The Sladen Library is located on the 17th floor in the clinic building with multiple reading and computer stations. In addition to numerous physical textbooks, residents have 24/7 access through an online portal that allows them to read from just about any major medical journal or reference source, as well as free use of question banks such as Board Vitals.


A number of corporate discounts are available to Henry Ford residents. Learn more here.
