Junior doctor tax guidance

Junior doctors can incur a number of costs during their training.

Typical costs can include:

  • travel expenses
  • accommodation and relocation costs as a result of participating in a rotational training programme
  • pre-employment checks and subscriptions to professional bodies, colleges or associations and trade unions
  • fees for training courses, exams and certificates

Along with the student debt many junior doctors have, the rising cost of postgraduate medical training can create a concerning financial burden upon individual doctors. However, there are ways you can alleviate some of these costs with various tax relief options.
