Family-friendly and career flexibility policies
to achieve work-life balance



Hiring, retaining and promoting a first-rate team of innovative, dedicated and motivated scientists and physicians is a top priority at UC Davis School of Medicine. This is why the school is committed to helping its faculty achieve optimum work-life balance and career satisfaction. These policies can help faculty accommodate the dual commitments of home and career, including leaves and flexible scheduling options for:
  • having or adopting children
  • spending more time with family
  • taking time off for illness or disability – your own or a loved one’s
  • tenure-clock extension
