Residents receive a stipend to be used for reimbursement of educational items and required travel with approval. Reimbursable items include, but not limited to, minor medical equipment, textbooks, journals, online educational applications, and approved association memberships. Residents will be reimbursed for expenses when proper documentation is submitted such as paid receipts, credit card statements and/or invoices from vendors.

The funding does not carry over from year to year.
