Expectations of a Supervisor

It is expected that as a supervisor you:

  • Are suitably qualified to supervise prevocational doctors (Accred Standard 3.2.3)
  • Understand all components of the assessment process (Accred Standard 2.3.3)
  • Understand your role and responsibilities in assisting prevocational doctors to meet learning objectives and in conducting assessments (Accred Standard 3.2.2)
  • Have access to professional development to support you in your role as supervisor (Accred Standard 3.3.1)

Supervisor Training

The AMC (in partnership with Postgraduate Medical Council of Victoria) have developed the Supervisor Training Modules which will be made available to you via your employer.

For WA Health sites, you can access the Supervisor Training Modules via the Learning Management System.

For non WA-Health sites, please contact your local medical education team for information about how you can complete the training. 

PMCWA request that all term supervisors complete the following two AMC Supervisor Training Modules (as either an online module, webinar or face-to-face) by Feb 2024*

  • Module 1 - Understanding the National Framework
  • Module 2 - The Role of the Term Supervisor

PMCWA request that all term supervisors complete the remaining four AMC Supervisor Training Modules (as either an online module, webinar or face-to-face) by June 2024*

  • Module 3 – Clinical Supervision
  • Module 4 – Beginning of Term Discussion
  • Module 5 – Mid and End of Term Assessments
  • Module 6 – Feedback

PMCWA recommend that all other supervisors (clinical and day to day supervisors), including registrars, undertake the full suite of AMC supervisor training during the duration of their supervision responsibilities.

Following completion of the Supervisor Training Modules, a certificate will be provided by your employer or downloaded via your Learning Management System. This training will be recognised nationally.

*As per Accreditation Standard 3.3 “Term supervisor training under these revised standards will become mandatory within three years from when the revised prevocational National Framework is implemented.” Further information about the recording and compliance can be found in the notes within this standard.
