Attendance Policy

Family Medicine Reno Residents

Purpose

To ensure that residents in the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine Family Medicine Residency Program maintain an acceptable level of attendance at residency activities and conferences.

Assigned Rotations

All residents will attend their rotations unless on approved leave. All leave must be submitted and checked, as there are several rotations that do not allow vacation. The resident must make all attempts to contact their preceptor or senior resident at least 1 week prior to the start of the rotation to establish the expected schedule. 

Didactics

All residents and students are to report to the weekly didactic session. Punctual arrival is expected and those residents who are repeatedly late will be discussed at the education committee and/or CCC in regards to professionalism, with actions taken as appropriate. Interns are also expected to attend all didactic sessions and make every attempt to arrange for coverage of duties while attending the sessions. PGY1 are also expected to attend all didactics sessions and make every attempt to arrange coverage of duties while attending the sessions.  The Hospital Resident(s) and faculty are strongly encouraged to attend the weekly didactic session and attendance will be left to the faculty to decide.  All students present on the hospital service rotation MUST be relased in sufficient time to attend didactics.  Again those exempt from didactics are those who are on approved leave or on rural rotations.

Balint Group

Residents are required to attend a monthly Balint group session. All expected absences require notification of the group leader prior to the start of the session.
