A Practical Guide for Paid Family and Medical Leave in Radiology, From the AJR Special Series on DEI.

Paid family and medical leave (FML) has significant benefits to organizations, including improvements in employee recruitment and retention, workplace culture, and employee morale and productivity, and is supported by evidence for overall cost savings. Furthermore, paid FML related to childbirth has significant benefits to individuals and families including but not limited to improved maternal and infant health outcomes and improved breastfeeding initiation and duration. In the case of paid non-childbearing parental leave, paid FML is associated with more equitable long-term division of household labor and childcare. Paid FML is increasingly being recognized as an important issue in medicine, as evidenced by the recent passage of policies by national societies and governing bodies including the American Board of Medical Specialties, American Board of Radiology, Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, American College of Radiology, and American Medical Association. Implementation of paid FML requires adherence to federal, state, and local laws as well as institutional requirements. Specific requirements pertain to trainees from national governing bodies such as the ACGME and medical specialty boards. Flexibility, work coverage, culture, and finances are additional considerations for ensuring an optimal paid FML policy that accounts for concerns of all impacted individuals.
