X. GENERAL PROGRAM POLICIES

RESIDENT VACATION POLICY

General Policy

  • All Residents receive 21 days of vacation per year consisting of 15 weekdays, and 6 weekend/holiday days (non-cumulative).
  • When a Resident is on vacation for both the day preceding, and the day following a holiday, the holiday will be counted as a vacation day.
  • When a Resident takes an entire Monday-Friday vacation, the Sunday preceding and the Saturday following will be counted as vacation days.
  • Detailed vacation policies can be found on the Resident Position Appointment (page 10).
  • All vacations will be scheduled with the approval of the head of the clinical rotation, and subject to University and Department regulations.
  • On inpatient and consultation-liaison services, resident vacations may not overlap for Residents on one service.  Residents may not take vacation during prolonged absence of their Attendings.  Vacations need to be arranged in advance with the Attending (to rule out Attending absence), the Chief Resident (to rule out overlap), and the Psychiatry Residency Program office.
  • No vacation is to be taken when one is on the one-month Psychiatric Emergency Service rotation; no vacation is to be taken in the last week of June or the first week of July.
  • No more than one week vacation can be taken on a one-month rotation, and no more than two weeks on a three month rotation.  For two month rotations:  the Resident who wishes to take more than one week (and up to two weeks) needs to obtain special approval of the Attending.
  • The Residency office needs to be notified once the leave is approved via MedHub 30 days in advance of planned time off and of the exact dates of the vacation.
  • Disagreements between Residents and Attendings or between Residents of the same service regarding vacation plans should be referred first to the Chief Resident and the Associate Residency Director and then if an agreement cannot be reached, to the Residency Training Director

(Adopted by the RESC on 12/2/1985; modified 5/21/2008; modified 5/12/2016.)
