Please download the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital Benefits Summary that summarizes the benefits available to House Staff members of Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

The Jefferson flexible benefits program allows you to make individual benefit selections based on your own needs. Employees must enroll online within 30 days from date of hire.

If a resident is trying to transfer from another educational program (prior to the completion of the training offered in that discipline in that institution) the Program Director of the Department of Family medicine will call the referring Program Director or Chairman to check the references PRIOR to making any offer of employment in the Department. If a resident is attempting to enter training at TJUH after completing a phase of training in another institution, a final letter of recommendation and evaluation must be obtained from the referring Program Director PRIOR to submitting the resident’s application for GMEC approval.

All offers of employment at Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals are contingent upon approval of the GMEC, licensure, and satisfactory completion of training in an ACGME-approved program or, where applicable, an AOA-accredited program. Residents entering their first year of training must have passed USMLE STEPS One and Two in order to qualify for appointment.
