Study leave

Study leave is available to all junior doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). Entitlement is dependent on post and length of rotations.

All study leave applications must be returned to the PGME department at least six weeks prior to the request stated on the form.

Study leave funding can be used for courses and conferences. Any funding or leave not taken in a rotation cannot be carried over to the next rotation. Study leave entitlement (days and reimbursement allowance) will not be approved if it falls outside the current rotation or post.

For doctors in HEE training posts, study leave is calculated according to six month blocks. For doctors in trust appointed posts study leave will be calculated in line with the financial year.

Study leave is discretionary and it needs to be approved by your Educational Supervisor and by your Rota co-ordinator.
