Occupational Health Guidance for Residents and Fellows

Residents are not strictly employees but are also trainees. UT Southwestern is the Sponsoring Institution and therefore retains ultimate authority over the residents and their training programs. However, the residents are employed by the hospitals. Residents rotate through most, if not all, our training sites, sometimes in a single day at work, so a decision made at one hospital often impacts multiple institutions. Please see Occupational Health guidance specifically for residents and fellows.
