Sick Days/Extended Illness
Sick days must be reported to the Pharmacy Administrator on call
(92429) as early as possible as outlined in the Department of Pharmacy
Policy and Procedures. In addition, the resident should also notify the
current rotation preceptor and Residency Program Director as early as
possible of their absence.
It is the responsibility of the resident to coordinate and make up any
missed work associated with preceptor for that rotation.
Illnesses longer than five days will follow the Department of Pharmacy
Policy: “Employee Dependability (Attendance and Tardiness)
Expectation.” If an employee is absent for five consecutive shifts and
has notified her/his supervisor, s/he must report to
Employee/Occupational Health Services for evaluation and clearance
prior to returning to work.
Multiple and/or extended illness may impact the resident's ability to
complete the requirements of the residency program. Such absences
should be discussed with the program director as early as possible to
evaluate and determine a plan of action for the resident.
In the event of a serious medical or personal condition requiring
extended leave, communication with the RPD and Human Resources should
be initiated as soon as possible to ensure that the resident is aware
of their benefit status and he/she can determine what actions, if any,
are available for continued benefits.
Whereas the residency program is a designed to be completed in a 12
month period, an extended leave may impact the resident’s ability to
successfully complete the requirements of the program during this 12
month period. Every effort will be made to work with the resident to
develop a plan to accomplish making up missed days, however this may
not be possible. In situations where an extended leave of absence
(greater than 4 weeks) necessitates an extension beyond the 12 months
of the residency in order to complete the residency requirements, the
resident may petition the RPD and DOP for an extension of their
residency end date. All decisions related to extensions will be made on
a case-by-case basis and cannot be guaranteed.
