Benefits Guide and Stipend Information For Residents and Fellows


  • 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. There is no financial cost to join. A donation of 16 hours (2 days) of sick time is required for enrollment.
  • A resident or fellow is eligible after one year of employment and 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 for the remainder of FMLA eligible leave.
