Vacation during the holiday period (CH+NY)
Residents are entitled to five (5) consecutive days off during this time period (block 7) and will be asked to choose from a period encompassing either Christmas or New Year. Alternatively, for religious reasons, residents may choose to take their five (5) consecutive days off during a different time, according to their religious observance. In this situation, residents would be required to be on service during both of the two above mentioned holiday periods.
Note that the two (2) days before Christmas and between the Christmas and New Year's vacation periods are “handover” days and are not available for time off.
Please be advised that when considering time-off requests Cardiology considers residents on CSU and consults rotation together, in order to avoid compromising patient care responsibilities.
