Coordinate the supervisory team

Coordinate the supervisory team

Supervision of a registrar is commonly shared by at least one other supervisor. Other members of the practice team, such as reception and administrative staff, cultural educators, nurses and other allied health workers, may also contribute to teaching and supervision. Therefore, we refer to the ‘supervisory team’.

Coordinating the supervisory team is the primary supervisor’s task. Activities that the supervisory team will need to consider together include:

  • orientating the registrar to the training site
  • approaches to best support the registrar
  • developing a supervision plan
  • developing a teaching plan
  • performing assessments.

In larger practices, the supervisory team may need to meet to clarify roles. Some practices maintain a shared log of teaching activities and assessments.
