    Overall good package. Especially if you are an international student. One will be all covered. I never had any issues with doctors visits.

    There are technically 1 sick day per month, leading to 12 days in an year. One can take those days off once you inform the Professor you work for

    I was really fortunate to get days off during my sick period. They are quite flexible doing that, commendable.

    The schedule is very flexible but you need to emailed ahead of time.

    I've never taken a "sick day", but I have requested days off for other reasons. As long as you tell the staff at least a day in advance, someone will almost always be able to cover your shift.

    Easy to have sick days
