We have providers (e.g., residents) that only work in our clinic for a limited number of shifts throughout the year. How do we calculate FTE for these providers?
Determine how many hours the resident typically worked in one time period (e.g., two 8-hour shifts in 10 weeks = 16 hours in 10 weeks). Divide the number of hours worked by the number of weeks to calculate the average hours worked per week (e.g., 16/10 = 1.6 hours/week). Divide this number by 40 hours/week to calculate FTE (e.g., 1.6 hours/week divided by 40 hours/week = .04 FTE). If the FTE status is <.01, enter .01 FTE. See more examples about how to calculate FTE on page 23 of the Registration guide.
