Aurora Health Care provides professional liability insurance while you’re completing your residency or fellowship training program. During your first year as a trainee, or when you are not yet licensed to practice medicine in Wisconsin, you’re included in the professional liability insurance policy of the medical center.
When you’re a licensed trainee, professional liability coverage is provided by a policy purchased by the medical center. You’ll need to complete an application form to get this insurance coverage.
Full-time medical residents or fellows and their eligible dependents are qualified to participate in our medical and dental insurance plans. Eligible dependents may include a spouse, child, same gender domestic partner and child of same gender domestic partner.
We offer multiple plan options for both medical and dental. Coverage is effective the first day of employment.
Coverage is $25,000 per individual, 100% employer paid.
Trainees receive 28 paid days (224 hours) each academic year for vacation, holidays and unplanned absence. Planned time off must be scheduled according to program policies and approved by the program director. Trainees can carry over a maximum of 40 hours of unused PTO at the end of the academic year.
Residents and fellows receive four days of paid bereavement time for immediate family members, three days for secondary family members and one day for an aunt, uncle, niece, nephew or grandparents-in-law.
All leaves are granted in accordance with Aurora Health Care policies, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1992 and the Wisconsin Family and Medical Leave Act, along with the approval of the residency or fellowship program director.
Status of the trainee's education level and graduation date may be altered based on time away from the program.
Aurora Health Care pays the full cost of short-term and long-term disability plans. Trainees are eligible for coverage the first of the month following three full calendar months of employment.
