On average residents get about 3 weeks of vacation per year (vacation/ holiday days are accrued over time). Our residency offers a uniquely flexible vacation schedule. Residents are not restricted to taking one week block vacations and can spread them out as desired to create anything from long weekends to extended international trips back home. We also pride ourselves in being a family-friendly program that offers ample time off for maternity or paternity leave.
