Training Supervisor Workshops

Training Supervisor Workshops

Supervisors play an important role in supporting trainees during their training, guiding their learning, helping to plan and facilitate learning opportunities and providing feedback on their progress.

RANZCOG has developed a Supervisor Training Program, Foundation and Refresher, that explores the integral role of the training supervisor and delves into the issues encountered by training supervisors as they balance workplace demands, College requirements and trainee learning needs. The interactive format draws on the collective experience of participants and experienced workshop facilitators.

The Foundation Supervisor Training Program

The new Foundation Supervisor Training Program has been specifically developed for FRANZCOG and DRANZCOG/ DRANZCOG ADV supervisors and builds on the Clinical Education Training Program (CET) that must be completed prior to attending the event.

  2. Identify the roles and responsibilities of a FRANZCOG/DRANZCOG Supervisor

  5. Identify impact of assessor on validity and reliability
