UCLA internal medicine salaries for 2019-2020
Internal medicine salaries are up 1% for the 2019-20 academic year and 1.7% for 2020-21, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research.
The increases are due to the growth of specialty hospitals in the state, according the National Institutes of Health.
UCLA’s average annual salary for the fiscal year 2019-2018 was $98,500, up $4,000 from last year, according a university press release.
In 2020-22, the average annual pay for the university’s internal medicine residency program was $107,100, up 9% from the previous fiscal year.
UCLA also has a two-year internship program for medical students, a fellowship for medical assistants and a $2,000 stipend to cover the cost of tuition.
The university’s average medical school tuition is $33,400, up 1.9% from last fiscal year, and the average medical assistant and intern salary is $31,800, up 3.9%.
The average graduate student salary is currently $60,700, up 7.5% from a year ago.
UCLA expects the increase in salary to offset the cost-of-living increases in the city, according.
The state has had a major spike in opioid overdose deaths in recent years.
The number of opioid overdoses reported in the area increased from 5,943 in 2016 to 6,061 in 2017, according UCLA.
The city of Los Angeles has experienced a dramatic increase in the number of overdoses in recent weeks.
In a statement, UCLA said it’s working to increase staffing and resources to help combat the increase.
It also noted that UCLA is offering free emergency screenings for all students and faculty at the university for the rest of the academic year.
