Parental leave during rehabilitation residency does not impact board pass rates

While residency training is a critical time in a physician’s career, there are various reasons why an extended leave might be necessary during this time. However, there is little data on how taking an extended leave during training can impact a resident’s board exam scores. Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine, in collaboration with colleagues at the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Mayo Clinic, found that those physical medicine and rehabilitation residents who took parental leave did just as well or better on their board exams as residents who took no leave during their training. Their report was published recently in the American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.
