Sick Leave, Maternity Leave, Paternity Leave
The Family Medical Leave Act of 1993 requires that up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave may be taken. However, we also comply with the American Board of Family Practice regulations. They require a resident to make up any one-month or longer absence from the program at the end of the three-year training period before they may take the family medicine certification exam.
Thus, 12 weeks of unpaid leave may be taken in accordance with the Family Medical Leave Act, but the resident may be unable to take their board certification exam until the year following the completion of the residency training.
