SUNY Upstate Resident started this petition to UUP Upstate Medical Chapter

The UUP has created a new CLEFR benefit which allows for reimbursement for job-related and career related exam fees for first time certification, licensure, or designation. Maximum reimbursement is $1,000 per program year with the program year running from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021. Although this benefit is a blessing to those of us struggling to juggle our numerous expenses and loan debt, the majority of the graduating (resident/fellow) trainee class will receive no reimbursement since you have to be a UUP member when you receive your passing exam grade. The intended beneficiaries are said to be the UUP member-paying physicians who have endlessly worked throughout this pandemic with no pay raise, but this seems counterintuitive. Resident physicians have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that our patients receive the best care possible, and many of us have not even had time to study for our board exams since we were working consecutive weeks with little time off in between. We understand these are difficult economic times however we humbly ask that a concession be made for all graduating residents regardless of if they are UUP members at the time of their exam.
