Resident Leave

We provide standard allowances within the requirements of the Residency Review Committee (RRC) and board certification for vacation, sick leave and paid holidays.

Vacation and Sick Leave

Vacation and sick leave are accrued monthly at a rate of 1 and 2/3rds days per month with a maximum of 20 days per PGY.

Holidays

Residents may be given a maximum of 10 paid holidays per year provided this does not conflict with RRC or Board eligibility requirements. Residents should refer to their program director for the program specific policy related to holiday pay.

Leave of Absence

Residents may be eligible for leave under the Family Medical Leave Act or their employers’ leave of absence policy. Residents/fellows should contact the UB Director of Human Resources for specific information.

Effect of Leave on Training

Any leave of absence, disability leave, or other time off those results in the resident/fellow’s inability to meet RRC or Board eligibility requirements for training time will result in an extension of the training program.
