As a PGY2 and PGY3 5 of the 15 vacation days can be used sporadically throughout the year.  Vacation time does not accumulate year to year. Clinical duties will be divided in a manner that ensures each resident will have time off during the holidays.

Sick Leave
All PGY's will receive up to 10 sick days per year. This number will start back at 10 at the beginning of the next academic year no matter if all days were not used.

Extended Leave

All stipend payments and benefits will be suspended during a leave of absence. Any leave without pay time taken may extend the completion date of your training program. You must use all your vacation and sick leave first before using your extended leave.

Military Leave
