X. GENERAL PROGRAM POLICIES

EDUCATIONAL LEAVE

General Policy

In addition to vacation time, Residents shall be allowed time off to attend educational meetings at the discretion of the head of the clinical service at their assigned hospital or clinic, and the Department Chair (see Housestaff Policy Agreement, Appendix Q).

Implementation

  • A Resident who plans to attend a conference or seminar will contact the Chiefs of all clinical services at which s/he will be working at the time of the conference or seminar, and request written approval for an educational leave.
  • The educational leave is only for the duration of the conference.  Additional time will be calculated as vacation time.
  • The Chiefs of the clinical services will make a positive effort to support and encourage educational leave.
  • The Chiefs of the clinics or hospitals can determine that, at any given time, only a limited number of Residents can be granted educational leave.  The Chiefs can grant leave on a first-come, first-serve basis, or organize a fair selection procedure.
  • Residents must submit a written request for educational leave, together with proof of approval of the clinic or hospital Chiefs, to the Residency office.  Residents must use the leave request form (Appendix M).
  • The Residency office will request approval from the Chair, take the necessary administrative steps, and notify the Resident as soon as final approval has been granted.  (The form in Appendix M will be returned to the Resident with the Chairís final approval or disapproval noted.)
  • Residents are advised not to pay registration fees before final approval has been granted.
  • Residents who feel that their request for educational leave has been refused by the Service Chiefs in an arbitrary manner or without good reason, should contact the Residency Training Director, who will attempt to mediate or will refer the issue to the Chair for determination
