Vacations and Leaves of Absence

All leave taken is at the discretion of the residency program director, who must take into consideration any restrictions on leave established by the certifying board and the training requirements of the program. Each program provides its residents with written, program-specific policies on leave which addresses the effect of leaves of absence, for any reason, on satisfying the criteria for completion of the residency program. A resident may be required to complete additional training equivalent to any leave taken in excess of that allowed by the training requirements of the program.

For complete details, please see "Annual Leave" in the current year of the GME Policy and Procedure Manual, which can be found on the Current Residents and Fellows page.
