Hospital Housestaff Allowance
Each resident is provided by YNHH an annual allowance of $1400 that may be used for the purchase of books, journal subscriptions, scientific association dues, examination fees, and/or travel/lodging for meetings, courses, or extramural rotations. Original receipts are required for reimbursement. On-line purchases must be documented with a printed receipt including both the details of the purchase and the method of payment. If the credit card number does not appear on the receipt, a copy of the card statement should be provided. Items paid by check require a copy of the front and back of the canceled check. All expenses should be submitted through the Program Coordinator. If there is any question about whether a particular expense would be covered, check with the Program Coordinator before incurring the expense. Spending must be completed by the end of the hospital's fiscal year (the following September 30th); graduating residents must complete their spending by the end of their residency on June 30th. Unused amounts cannot be carried over into subsequent years.
