OUTSIDE ROTATIONS

  • If the rotation is likely to be frequently repeated, it is easier to affiliate the rotation (through RRC/ACGME) instead of repeatedly requesting approval (through ABA)
program requirements resident absences
PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS – RESIDENT ABSENCES

  • The total of any and all absences may not exceed 60 days during the Clinical Anesthesia 1-3 years of training
