Well-being and Wellness Days
Intent: The provision of wellness days is in keeping with the section on Well-Being found in the ACGME’s Common Program Requirements Section VI.

To allow residents and fellows to attend to their/family’s personal health and wellness, including medical, dental, and mental health appointments, annually (academic year) residents and fellows will be provided with four (4) wellness days in addition to other leave time (including sick and vacation leave). The four wellness days may be split into half days. This is provided and structured with the goal of minimizing disruptions to both patient care and training, while allowing residents and fellows sufficient protected time for appropriate personal health maintenance and wellness.
