Trainee doctors and dentists can apply for funded study leave. The Scotland Deanery operates a national process and system to ensure that all applications for study leave are considered on a fair, equitable and consistent basis.
The policy and operational guide was reviewed in 2016-2017, and NES-approved version made available in August 2017. The Deanery have consulted with the BMA in the course of this review. We hope to have formal BMA approval in place although please note, as of 31 July 2017, paragraph 49 is still under discussion.
How to apply for study leave
Applications must be made via Turas TPM [the NES online training management system]. Study Leave Applications must be made in advance of the activity/event and cannot be logged on Turas, and will not be accepted, retrospectively.
