Wellness Half Days
Residents are allowed to schedule two paid wellness half days per year in order to facilitate doctor, dentist or other wellness appointments. These should be scheduled while residents are on outpatient or consult rotations, with 60 days’ notice, and must not impact continuity clinics or Friday School. The two wellness half days should not be scheduled during the same two-week schedule block. Wellness days cannot roll over from one year to the next. Any urgent medical issues should be reported to the chief resident so that cross cover can be pulled for urgent appointments.
