Residency leave feedback deadline moved to April 30

Residency leave feedback deadline moved to April 30

In an effort to welcome as much feedback as possible, the ABR is extending the deadline to April 30 for comments on a new residency leave policy. We are seeking feedback so that we may develop a plan before July 1 to comply with an ABMS requirement announced last year to clearly state these requirements in our policies.


Recent discussions, both with external stakeholders and within the Board, have supported an increase above our historic limit of 30 workdays per year (to include vacation and other leave). A specific option that has received broad support is seven work weeks (35 workdays) per year, averaged over the length of a four-year residency. This would be the equivalent of four weeks of vacation per year, plus 12 weeks for parental, caregiver, and medical leave as outlined in the ABMS policy.


Please consider sharing your thoughts before the end of April. We also have available a recording of a webinar on the topic that was held April 8.
