COVID-19 Training Policy of the American Board of Pathology

The American Board of Pathology will allow the following reasons for absence from on-site training to count as clinical training if the resident/fellow arranges with their program director to continue learning and training activities. Residents/fellows should keep a daily log of time spent and a brief description of the activities. The Program Director must attest that the overall competency of the resident/fellow at the completion of training was not adversely affected by the absence.

• COVID-19 illness or exposure
• Mandated quarantine
• Shelter in place/shelter at home directives
• Self-imposed isolation because of significant underlying health issues
• Care for a sick or quarantined immediate family member
• Providing childcare due to school/childcare closures
• Volunteering or being assigned to other institutional or clinical duties

The ABPath will consider additional requests for absences on a case-by-case basis from residents who miss training for an extended period of time for other reasons.
