Each fellow will be allowed two weeks of vacation (not including required or elective conferences, with approval of the program director). This must overlap with their DCR rotations. The DCR fellow is responsible for informing all fellows and attendings of their upcoming vacation time at least one month in advance.

Fellows will be supported to travel to research conferences, should they get an abstract accepted. During the second year of fellowship, the fellows will also be supported to go to the fellow American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS) conference and the ASTS living donor nephrectomy workshop.
