Foundation Year 1

Educational Supervisor

The educational supervisorĀ is the professional responsible for making sure that you receive appropriate training and experience and who decides whether individual placements have been completed successfully. A Guide for Foundation Doctors on Supervision can be downloaded here

The Trust will inform you of your educational supervisor at the beginning of the year, when you will also receive your induction.Ā The allocation of educational supervisors varies across Trusts and you may be allocated an educational supervisor for the entire year or for each placement. If the allocation is on a placement basis your Clinical supervisor will usually also be your educational supervisor but please check with your Trust if you are unsure.
