Sick Days

In the event that you are sick, please notify your clinical preceptor.  You will also need to notify the preceptor and place (college, pharmacy site) of that day's learning activity.  Any obligations (patient care appointments, presentations, health fairs, etc.) may require you finding coverage or delegating that responsibility.  Appropriate make-up opportunities or excused absences will be discussed with your clinical preceptor upon your return. In the event that you are sick on a scheduled staffing day follow banner procedures to ensure the store is adequately covered.  

 

Vacation

Residents receive ten vacation days to use during the residency year.  Vacation requests are due to the respective Clinical Preceptor by August 1st.  Requests for changes to vacation schedules should be emailed to your Clinical Preceptor for approval.  Vacation is tracked by the Clinical Programs Administrative Assistant.  All approved vacation requests and approved changes to vacation requests should be emailed to the Residency Director and Department Administrative Assistant by the Resident. 

Outlook Out of Office Assistant should be used on days when you will be out of the office. The message should state your return date as well as the name and telephone number of an emergency contact.  In most instances, the emergency contact should be the respective Clinical Preceptor.  The contact person should be made aware that they will be listed in your Out of Office response.
