A supervisor’s core tasks

A supervisor is pivotal to the workplace-based education of general practice registrars. Fundamental to a supervisor’s work is ensuring the registrar’s patients are being safely managed. Beyond this, a supervisor provides education and support to the registrar. A supervisor’s core tasks include:

  • coordinating the supervisory team (designated supervisor)
  • orientating a registrar to the practice
  • developing and monitoring a clinical supervision plan
  • providing daily supervision
  • developing an in-practice teaching plan
  • providing regular uninterrupted teaching sessions
  • giving regular feedback
  • completing required assessments
  • supporting and advocating for the registrar with the training site and the RACGP
  • evaluating the education and supervision provided.
