When a resident doctor is required to move from one location to another for residency training, they will receive 36 consecutive hours paid leave to move. Residents who are moving for fellowships will also be included in this article, and are granted 36 hours of consecutive paid leave to move to their fellowship.

Moving leave is not considered time available for call and should be subtracted from the total number of days available when calculating call maximums.
