ST1 & ST2

GP Trainees have up to 15 days discretionary study leave per annum.  Study leave needs to be discussed and approved by your Educational Supervisor, the GP Programme Directors and Clinical Supervisor before you apply. The course also needs to be one of the agreed courses which can be found https://pgme.info/resources/forms/  and then by clicking the link to https://lasepgmdesupport.hee.nhs.uk/support/home#8

Study Leave applications will need to be in areas where you have gaps in your knowledge and GP curriculum coverage and should not be used to cover areas that you may already have a lot of experience in.

We feel that up to 5 days maximum could be allowed to prepare for the Applied Knowledge Test (AKT) exam and this should be discussed with your Educational Supervisor.

For ST1s and ST2s – the half day release course when in GP placements does not count as study leave.
