Vacation and Leave of Absence
Residents are allotted four weeks of paid vacation per year, usually scheduled in one week blocks. Time away from work to attend scientific meetings where the resident presents his own work is considered as time on duty if approved in advance by the Program Director.
Other Leaves and Absences
Institutional policies governing all other absences are detailed in the UHC Residents' and Fellows' Manual. Please refer to specific sections of the Manual for information pertaining to Bereavement Leave, Jury Duty, Sick Time, Family Medical Leave, Maternity/Paternity Leave, Extended Leave of Absence, and Professional Leave of Absence. Be aware that the period of training may have to be extended if non-vacation leave is taken. Please contact the Program Director as soon as any unscheduled leave is anticipated.
