Sick Leave

When life happens and you need to care for your health, or the health of someone else in your household, you can rest assured knowing you are accruing up to 12 days per year of sick leave. As an added benefit, if you can provide documentation of accumulated sick leave from your previous employer, AAMC will credit your sick leave balance up to 20 days.

Sick Leave Trust

AAMC’s Sick Leave Trust program allows you and other staff members to donate sick leave hours to a general fund. Those hours can then be accessed by participating staff members who have exhausted their sick and annual leave balances when managing their own serious health condition, or that of a family member.
