Q: My program only gave me 3 weeks of vacation this year/did not grant the ‘1 week educational leave’ as a vacation week. Does this mean I will get an extra week before the 2023-2024 year ends?

A: (1/12/2024) Yes, the four weeks of vacation should apply to 2023-2024 – reach out to your program leadership. PDs will be having town halls with GME to get more information about this. The new language means that everyone gets 4 weeks of vacation, and that 1 week of those 4 MAY be used for education/conferences.

Q: When can I start using the rideshare services to/from sites when too tired to drive?

A: That should be active as of January 2024 – please contact if having issues using this.

Q: When does the increased $20k lifetime fertility benefit (used to be $10k lifetime) go into place/start being reflected on our insurance benefits?

A: (1/4/2024) – this may take a few pay periods to implement, we have reached out to HR to clarify the timing.
