Discover how to be a confident leader and mentor

Supervising clinical learners is an important and necessary part of the work lives of most health practitioners, however, many do not relish this component of their role.

Some lack confidence in their teaching skills and others do not feel they have the time to provide an optimum learning environment whilst balancing the needs of their patients.

Professor Stephen Trumble, Department of Medical Education, wants to change this perception and has developed an online course in Clinical Supervision.
