Nearly 95% of medical schools and teaching hospitals offer their residents 10 or less personal days, according to a report by the Association of American Medical Colleges. The report surveyed 186 institutions—49 medical schools and 137 Council of Teaching Hospital and Health System members—during the 2014-2015 academic year.

In addition to those personal days, the survey found about 42% of institutions offered residents 16 to 21 annual vacation days, followed by 11 to 15 days (39%), and 22-28 days (11%). About one-half of the surveyed institutions also offered residents 11 to 15 sick days, while 41% offered 10 days or less, and 6% offered 16 to 21 days.
