Residents accepting this position agree to complete 12 months of residency training at Saint Mary's campus and must complete all the requirements for the program before the certificate of completion can be awarded.

The annual salary for this full time residency position is currently $40,000. Residents receive ten days paid time off for vacation/sick time.
