The Sick Leave Bank is designed to assist residents and fellows by continuing their pay when they are out of work due to an injury or illness. 

Residents and fellows are encouraged to enroll in the Sick Leave Bank upon hire as there is no financial cost to join. A donation of 16 hours of sick time is required for enrollment.

A resident or fellow must be a member of the SLB a minimum of six months before s/he can request time from the Bank. Once on an approved Family Medical Leave, all accrued vacation, personal, sick and compensatory time must be used and the resident must be absent without pay for five days before being eligible to draw from the Bank. If approved, your pay will be continued to a maximum of 480 hours.
