    No holidays for interns in our hospital

    I am working as an intern in a government hospital. I have just started my internship and have come to know that there are no holidays for interns at all throughout the year except in one posting. They have told me that this is the same in every college. But I donít think this is right. What can be done in such a case?

    In this case you should talk to your college seniors wo may have done their internship from this medical college and try to get their feedback on this issue.
    They can tell you that if there are any weekly off for the Interns or not
    Alternatively you can also meet the hospital head and ask for one weekly off per week
    Everywhere employees are given atleast one weekly off per week

    hi dear,,,
    if it is so,,then it would for all not only for you.
    yet,if you are not satisfied with it then you should check the terms and condition of your intern ship.
    if nothing is mentioned there regarding holidays then you should contact to the authority for the same.
    if it is the rule then you can't do anything .you have to follow it
    intern ship is very important part of one's professional life.
    so,beware about that.

    AS an intern in Govt hospital you will not be able to enjoy any holiday.I think this norm is bad every one need holiday.Without holiday for the log year a depression and monotony ma come.You and other intrnee resolve to do something agsainst such ileegal norms.Every worker has the right to enjoy holiday atleast 36 hours in a week.Hence you will not get a single hour in a year I can not believe it.So, you and your Group submit application to Director of Health...and copy to Health Minister also to labour office to get leave as per norms.

    You must raise this issue up to the ministerial level to get due favour for your leave issue.

    Thank you,

    Dear Friend,
    I believe you are talking about special holidays, not weekly holidays and my friends here have assumed it as weekly holidays. Because, there must be one day weekly off in your hospital and no one can work continuously throughout the year.

    Internship period is the most important period of your career, when you work with the prime purpose of learning. So, you must not think about holidays much and concentrate on your job ahead to become a decent doctor.

    Also, the rule will not be unique for you and will be same for everyone there. If you are still having problem with it then at first, you may consult your seniors and ask them how they dealt with it. They will suggest you ways to tackle it. If you don't get any solution then go and meet the person in charge for leaves in your hospital and request for the same. If he also doesn't help even then there are many options for you.

    You can always make some excuses to take leave and if you are sick no one can force you to work. There are so many excuses begging to be made

    I hope you got the clues.
