Taxi Vouchers for Residents and Fellows

The Office of Graduate Medical Education provides taxi vouchers to any resident or fellow who feels too tired to drive home safely after a long work shift.  Please note that the vouchers are only to be used in the event a trainee is unfit to safely drive home.  The voucher is good for a one time, two-way ride in a Yellow Cab from SHC to the trainee's home then back to SHC at no cost to the trainee.

If you have any questions regarding this program please call the GME Office at (650) 723-5948
