Changes to a Registrar’s Medical Registration

Registrars must advise the Director of Training (neil.spike@evgptraining.com.au) immediately in writing should the conditions on their medical registration change.  Registrars are also responsible for advising their training practice with any registration changes.

Registrar Leave Entitlements

  • Entitled to four weeks of paid annual leave per year, pro rata (two weeks per semester)

Personal/Carers Leave:

  • Entitled to ten days of paid leave per year, pro rata (5 days per semester)

Leave from the program (Category 1): 

  • Parental, sick and carer’s leave
  • Will be approved by EV on the basis of supporting documents and evidence
  • Unpaid leave that affects training time and may affect your eligibility to sit exams

Additional leave from the program (Category 2):

  • Capped at maximum of 26 calendar weeks throughout your core vocational training
  • Needs to be pre-approved 4 weeks in advance by EV by submitting an Application for Leave (found on the website under training policies)

Registrars are not entitled to additional study leave and therefore need to take this as annual leave or apply for Category 2 leave.

If you have taken additional leave without prior approval from EV you will need to submit a leave form immediately and this will be raised with EV management.

Should you have any further questions please refer to the ED-Org-8.13 AGPT Program Leave procedure
