Supervisors are specialist GPs who teach, inspire and support the next generation of GPs through their years of training.
Supervisors offer one-on-one teaching, supervision, support, feedback and advice.
A GP supervisor is responsible for helping their students gain confidence and competence by giving them comprehensive clinical experience and instilling a sense of professional responsibility. Tasks include helping registrars develop their learning plans and providing formal teaching, including regular tutorials. They also teach informally during opportunistic ‘corridor chats’ or over lunch.
