Interrupting or withdrawing from training
Interrupting your training
Interrupted training refers to an absence from your training rotations for more than eight weeks consecutively in a training year. This includes parental leave (maternity, paternity or adoptive leave).
Use the Interruption of Training form if you are interrupting your training this year. Register, where possible, your period of interruption with the RACP before you begin your interrupted training.
