Reimbursement

To purchase medical books, the resident shall bring a list of titles, authors, and price to the Residency Coordinator. The Residency Coordinator will prepare a requisition form and notify the resident as soon as the requisition is approved. The resident will then pick up the requisition and take it to the University bookstore. The resident will not need to pay for the purchase. If the book allowance is exceeded, the resident must pay the excess balance at the time of purchase. Books may also be purchased elsewhere, and then reimbursed (excluding sales tax) with proper receipts.
