Medical Center, salaries for represented House Officers are collectively bargained by UCSD and the San Diego
House Officer Association.

In addition, participating fellows have all expenses paid to attend and present at the annual American Geriatrics Society conference. Often support is also available for attendance at additional conferences (based on interests of individual fellows).
