The HOA and the Employer recognize that due to leaves, as addressed in Articles XIII and XIV, delays or interruptions may arise during training such that the required training cannot be completed within the required total training time established for each training program and that the requirements vary between training programs. In such circumstances, if the trainee's Program Director and Clinical Competency Committee attest that the trainee has achieved required competence, the Program Director may seek on the resident's behalf, a reduction-in-training, to the extent allowed by the individual's national certifying Board.
