When you are too tired to Drive
You are able to utilize any service of your choice (Uber, Taxi, Lyft) when you are too tired to drive home safely after a long in-house call or a lengthy shift. You can utilize the service to return to work the next day to pick up your car. You cannot take a ride in to work with plans of being too tired to get home. You will need to submit your receipts, along with a description of why you needed a ride home and back to work to the GME office for reimbursement. Usage is reviewed and repeated usage may result in a meeting with your Program Director to discuss other fatigue mitigating options.
