AbstractINTRODUCTION In 2021, the American Board of Radiology (ABR) announced a new residency leave policy which provided much needed guidelines for leave during residency for both trainees and program directors (PDs) (1). The policy went into effect for the 2021-2022 academic year and allows for a maximum leave “that does not exceed an average of eight weeks (40 working days) per academic year over the duration of the residency.” While PDs were eager to have guidance and a new trainee-friendly policy, many did not know where to start with implementing the policy and how it would affect scheduling. This manuscript provides guidance for operationalizing the new ABR Residency Leave Policy so that it is optimal for trainees, programs and PDs.
