Back Up Call and Jeopardy on a Holiday

You still receive Holiday Pay if you are not called!

If assigned to back up call or jeopardy and you are not called, you are still entitled to holiday pay on any of the 10 House Officer holidays listed below.  Please make sure you understand how your program assigns back up call and jeopardy on a holiday.  

The HOA realizes there is no mechanism in MedHub for reporting this circumstance.  Please send a separate email to your program coordinator if a process for reporting hasn't already been established by your program.  If there is an issue or any question or you haven't received your pay, notify Robin and she will work to resolve the issue.
