Educational supervisor workshop and accreditation

The Royal College of Physicians' (RCP's) Educational supervisor workshop and accreditation has been developed to meet the latest General Medical Council (GMC) standards and give formal recognition to those with an explicit supervision role.

Gold Guide

Updated in line with the 2016 Gold Guide, this course addresses the seven areas of the Academy of Medical Educators’ Framework for the Professional Development of Postgraduate Medical Supervisors and the General Medical Council (GMC) standards for the recognition and approval of trainers.

What will you learn?

The 2-day workshop includes:

  • essential knowledge and skills for educational supervisors
  • how to make best use of the curriculum and e-portfolio to support your trainees
  • objective setting: helping your trainees to set clear goals
  • the effective appraisal process
  • giving effective feedback to trainees
  • supporting underperforming trainees
