LEAVES OF ABSENCE AND PART TIME STATUS

Policy

University of Washington psychiatry residents may take leaves of absence in accordance with Graduate Medical Education policies and the Residency Position Appointment. Issues and requirements specific to psychiatry are as follows:

  1. Psychiatry residency requires 48 months FTE of training (including an approved PGY-1 year) and must be completed at no less than half-time (50% time). Certain rotations (e.g. medicine, pediatrics, inpatient psychiatry, consultation-liaison psychiatry, inpatient child and adolescent psychiatry) must be completed on a full-time basis.
  2. Any unpaid leave, or part-time status, will result in extension of residency to result in a total of 48 months FTE of approved residency and completion of all graduation requirements.
  3. The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) certification examination in Psychiatry is given once a year, in the fall. The resident must graduate by July 31 in order to take the ABPN examination in the same calendar year. Extending residency beyond July 31 will result in a delay in the resident's ability to take the examination until the following calendar year.
  4. Leaves of absence and part-time status must be approved by the program director. The program strongly encourages any resident planning or requesting a leave of absence to notify the program director as far in advance as possible, in order to facilitate planning and ensure that he/she will be able to meet all residency graduation requirements in a timely manner
