5 flex days

  • Instead of having a total of 4 weeks (20 days) vacation, we provide 3 weeks vacation with 5 flex days. Flex days can be used at any time during the year to take time off from clinical duty. Some of the many ways these flex days can be used include:

    • Adding onto an existing vacation

    • Adding to a long weekend

    • Additional sick days

    • Attending family events

    • Extra study days for ITE or boards

    • Fellowship interviews

    • There are many possibilities! The advantage is being able to use a day off whenever needed rather than having a scheduled week that may or may not coincide with dates in your personal/family life.

Wellness days

  • One Saturday during the year, all the residents will get together for a program sponsored bonding activity.
  • Extra wellness/study/research days can also be earned. By working three late duty shifts (17:30-21:30), one non clinical day will be provided for wellness/research/study time.
