While the residency program director and coordinator will be your primary contact persons during the application process, the GME Office can be another source of assistance to you. The GME website contains all currently approved policies as well as some helpful educational links and resources. A sample contract is also available for review there.

  • Vacations for House Officers (University Health System Policy)
    Fifteen (15) vacation days with pay are granted each contract year and must be approved by the Program Director.

The requirements of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) must be satisfied by each resident prior to the Program Director certifying the resident to take Part 1 of the ABOG exam (i.e. absent no more than twelve weeks/year in any year of Residency with a total not to exceed 24 weeks for the entire residency). Any leave of absence in excess of the ABOG rules will require extension of residency.
