- Offering dedicated Supervisor and New Supervisor workshops to support individual supervisors and cross fertilise ideas across the team. Visit the Events Calendar for upcoming dates
- Encouraging supervisors to attend conferences to share information, network and present approaches to GP Training. Visit the Supervisor noticeboard for upcoming opportunities
- Cross-promoting and supporting supervisor attendance at continuing professional development opportunities, particularly Rural Emergency Skills Training for GP supervisors working in remote and alpine settings in the region.
- Introducing a program to support the business needs of GP supervisors and their practices that includes the opportunity to attend one professional development event in their local MCCC region per annum with a topic focussed on the business of general practice.
MCCC strives to protect its Supervisors and Registrars in the case of a near miss, critical incident or adverse event within general practice training. MCCC strongly encourages Supervisors to familiarise themselves with the Critical Incident and Adverse Events Policy found here, in order to effectively prepare for, and respond to, such events.
