Call Stipends

By admin 0

The Call Stipend Form has changed.

Dear Members,

The on-call submission form was one of the top concerns for Residents in the 2013-2014 Negotiations Survey. Resident Doctors of BC has listened to your comments and concerns regarding the form and has been working hard for many months to create a new one that would address these issues. The new form has been tested by your Chief Residents and Board of Directors, and we are pleased to announce that it is now ready to use!

To access the form visit www.callstipend.ca This web address will replace the link that was previously sent out each month. The web address to access the form will not change month to month. For help and how to submit visit the FAQ

Call submissions still need to be made no later than 30-days after block end; however, the new form will now always be available for call submission 24-7, so calls can be submitted as they are completed. To ensure you are paid in a timely matter, we will continue to send reminder emails for the payroll deadlines.

You will not be paid for excessive call; call must meet the requirements and limitations of the Collective Agreement. The hours you enter on the form are controlled by the types of on-call definitions. Entering multiple calls on the same day, or excessive call (more than 1:3 out-of-house or 1:4 in-house), will result in a stopped payment until the Resident and Program can be contacted.

Submissions need to match your uploaded on-call schedule; entries that do not match will not be processed. If you do not have a call schedule, simply note down the dates and contact details of your supervisor in the “Comments” box, and attach a document listing your call details and your supervisor information.  Submissions without call schedules (uploading a blank document) or documentation noting the required information will not be processed.

Ensure all required fields are filled correctly to expedite the payment process.  If your program has submitted a variance, and you have performed more call then allowed on the form, you must make a note of this in the “Comment” box in order to be paid under the approved variance.

Resident Doctors of BC is available by email or phone to help those who have questions about submitting.

Sincerely,

Resident Doctors of BC
