Regional Education Travel Reimbursement for Community Rotations
Undergraduate clerks doing core specialty (not FM) rotations and Specialty Postgraduate residents (does not apply to DFM residents) doing mandatory rotations are reimbursed for travel expenditures to and from their community rotations outside of Kingston.
The cost for 1 return trip for each completed two-week time period (or one week Brockville Obs/Gyn rotation) is available for reimbursement at our standard allowable amount (please refer to our Travel Reimbursement Bulletin for amounts). Requests for further travel reimbursements related to study/program requirements will need to be submitted to the Undergraduate Dean or Residency Program and Postgraduate Dean. The discipline specific core Clerkship Director identifies the core community rotation. The Postgraduate Residency Director identifies the mandatory community Postgraduate rotation.
The clerk or resident will need to maintain expenditure receipts for their travel but do not need to submit same to Regional Education office.
Travel reimbursement is contingent upon fulfillment of LEARNER RESPONSIBILITIES.
