Residents are paid every two weeks. Although members aren’t paid an hourly wage, your salary is represented on your pay stub as 75 hours for a full two week pay period. The payroll department of VCH processes Resident payroll, acting as the central paying agency for all Residents, regardless of your working location.
Payroll distributes pay stubs according to information provided from the program office through the PG Deans office. To see an example of a paystub, please click here. Members working at Vancouver Hospital, BC Women’s, BC Children’s, Royal Columbian, UBC, St. Paul’s, and Victoria will have their pay stubs sent to the hospital site. They will not mail pay stubs to members’ homes, unless you are located outside of these locations.
Please save all your pay stubs and double check them every month. If something is amiss please contact payroll immediately at 604-297-8683 or email PayrollServicesInquiries@vch.ca and be sure to inform them that this is an inquiry regarding a medical resident, as different rules apply to different employee groups!
Residents are employees of the current hospital they are working in. Payroll and Benefit services are administered by the Vancouver Coastal Health Payroll Department and HR Services – PHC, PHSA, VCH at Vancouver General Hospital.

Pay Periods & Paydays
Each pay period results in a payday in the week following the pay period. This means that for new members, the first payday will not be a full two-week period. You may not see on-call, meal, or chief allowances on the July 20th pay stub. This delay in payment can occur every July and January, as on-call information is gathered from the departments, compiled and submitted to Payroll for processing. Any allowances missed during this period will be processed as retroactive payments.
