Educational Supervision

During the thirty-six months of training a trainee will be allocated an Educational Supervisor who will be a practising General Practitioner within the Dartford Training Programme. A hospital Consultant will act as Clinical Supervisor for each of the four-month posts during the ST1 and 2 years of training. These colleagues work collaboratively with the Training Programme Directors to provide relevant and robust training and support for the trainees.

Trainees are able to take one day per placement to meet with their Educational Supervisor in their GP Practice. This will allow for closer support and educational supervision, to ensure learning and assessments are on track and for links to be developed and understood between hospital medicine and General Practice.
