Mileage Reimbursement for Distributed Education

Categories: expenses funding residents travel PGME

Funding is available to support resident travel between distributed sites in Saskatchewan for approved core (mandatory) rotations. This travel fund is not available to support expenses related to resident electives.

Residents who travel to a distributed site for an approved core rotation will be reimbursed for one return trip between their home base and the distributed site. In addition, mileage reimbursement for one additional trip, to attend a program mandated activity (e.g. exam, resident research day), is available. The program mandated activity would require the resident to return to the home program while assigned to a distributed learning site and must be authorized by the Program Director. Where possible, programs should avoid mandating a resident’s return if not absolutely necessary; for example, programs should do their best to utilize other resources such as videoconferencing to help residents participate in program activities while away.

Reimbursement Process using Concur

When the rotation has ended the resident will submit an expense report for mileage reimbursement through the U of S online Concur travel and expense system. Residents should contact their Program Administrative Assistant or Finance Manager if they need assistance in submitting the Concur expense report.
