See stipends and benefits information on the Baylor College of Medicine’s graduate medical education website. Stipend levels are at the national average, but Houston's cost of living ranks among the lowest of metropolitan areas in the United States.

Maintaining your physical and emotional wellness is a prerequisite to professional success. Our residents have access to a number of programs to support their well-being. View wellness resources.

Information about vacation and leave of absences is available on the graduate medical education website.

The Department of Neurology provides individual offices for the fellows, conference rooms with state-of-the-art video equipment, video studio and video editing equipment, and other amenities.  The PDCMDC provides administrative support and funding for memberships in the American Academy of Neurology, International Parkinson and Movement Disorders Society as well as travel support for abstract presentations and other meetings. In addition, all fellows are invited to participate in the Comprehensive Review of Movement Disorders for the Clinical Practitioner, a CME course co-directed by Dr. Jankovic, held annually since 1991 in Aspen, CO, USA.
