All residents receive two weeks of vacation per year. Each program director, at their discretion, can grant up to an additional two weeks away (consistent with ACGME and specialty board requirements) for illness, fellowship interviews, conferences, and other qualified reasons.
If your vacation was cancelled by your Program Director due to staffing requirements, then your Program Director may roll over up to two weeks vacation into the next academic year for you.
If your vacation was cancelled or disrupted due to COVID (i.e., travel restrictions, flights, etc.), and you still took the time off, then additional vacation will not be rolled into the next academic year.
If you are a graduating resident and your vacation was cancelled due to staffing requirements, up to two weeks of missed vacation time will be paid out. GME will be working with Program Directors in the coming weeks on missed vacation payouts for graduating residents.
