Severn Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME) has analysed General Medical Council (GMC/PMETB) training requirements for educational and clinical supervisors and as a result has established seven core training requirements that all educational supervisors must meet.

A range of training activities has been established to enable educational supervisors to meet these requirements.

Requirements 1-4

(Roles and responsibilities, assessments, educational appraisal, educational theory and practice)

These are usually delivered as a one day training course organised by Trusts.

Requirement 5

(Annual Review of Competence Progression)

This is now available as a short on-line module upon request to Severn Education.

Requirement 6

(Equality and diversity)

This is available as a short online module. To gain access to the module please contact the Severn Education Team.

Requirement 7

(How to Support Trainees, previously Doctors in Difficulty)

This is delivered through a series of half day courses organised by Severn Postgraduate Medical Education, delivered at Deanery House and Trust's Academies.
