Vacation & Leave Policies


All residents are eligible for 20 vacation days during each academic year.  If vacation days are unused, 10 may roll over into the following year.

Vacation Request Considerations:

Sick Leave

If a resident is ill and unable to perform their clinical duties, they are asked to notify our program coordinator, Crystal Upshaw, as well as the chief resident of operations as soon as possible.  They will assist in finding coverage (if applicable) or will notify the attending for the resident's current rotation that they will be absent.
