Whenever practicable, House Officers will receive notice of non-reappointment no later than 4 months prior to the end of their training year.

  1. It is the intent of the Employer to assure that each House Officer is given appropriate due process in any issue concerning unsatisfactory work performance.
  2. Each training program will maintain a written policy regarding the criteria for promotion, and/or renewal of House Officer's appointment as per ACGME guidelines.
  3. Additionally, a copy of a program's policy on promotion and/or renewal of a House Officer's appointment, as well as any related policies on evaluation, remediation, probation, suspension, and termination will be provided to the House Officer Association or an individual House Officer, upon request.
  4. The Employer, however, retains the right to immediate termination of a House Officer without remediation in order to ensure the safety of either patients or staff.
