Health Education England (HEE) has developed a new resource for clinical and educational supervisors of foundation doctors.
Many individuals are involved in the development of a foundation doctor, including educational and clinical supervisors who play a key role in terms of guidance and support. It is important to ensure that they are trained to identify and meet the needs of those going through this level of medical training.
Training for the foundation supervisor supports the professional development of educators and includes video-based practical modules on topics such as supervision, feedback, workplace based assessments, dealing with doctors in difficulty and Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP).
Sessions may also be relevant to supervisors of speciality and GP trainees.
HEE has worked with elearning for healthcare (elfh) to review and update existing supervisor modules and create a new learning pathway which is available on the elfh Hub.
