Policies

To ensure that you receive full information about the policies that pertain to our residency training programs, we are sharing those policies with you. While the residency program director and coordinator will be your primary contact persons during the application process, the GME Office can be another source of assistance to you. The GME website contains all currently approved policies as well as some helpful educational links and resources. A sample contract is also available for review there.

Vacations for House Officers (University Health System Policy)
Fifteen (15) vacation days with pay are granted each contract year and must be approved by the Program Director. Please refer to UHS House Staff Manual for information.

Sick Leave for House Officers (University Health System Policy)
Ten (10) sick days with pay granted each contract year. Please refer to UHS House Staff Manual for information.

The requirements of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) must be satisfied by each resident prior to the Program Director’s certifying the resident to take Part 1 of the ABOG exam, i.e., no more than eight weeks/year in any year of Residency with a total not to exceed 20 weeks for the entire residency. Any leave of absence in excess of the ABOG rules must be made up by extending the end of the residency by that time, which requires prior RC approval.

While the residency program director and coordinator will be your primary contact persons during the application process, please let us know if the GME Office can be of assistance to you.
