Information about educational and clinical supervision at Medway NHS Foundation Trust, including details about the roles, training required and standards.

Educational supervisors

An educational supervisor is a trainer who is selected and appropriately trained to be responsible for the overall supervision and management of a specified postgraduate doctors educational progress during a training placement or series of placements.


The educational supervisor is responsible for the postgraduate doctors educational agreement and should develop a supportive relationship with the postgraduate doctor; honest, constructive feedback and pastoral support should be given when needed. 

Regular meetings should be conducted to discuss postgraduate doctors’ educational and clinical objectives.

Clinical supervisors


A clinical supervisor is a trainer who is selected and appropriately trained to be responsible for overseeing postgraduate doctors clinical work and for providing constructive feedback during a postgraduate doctors placement. The roles of Clinical and Educational Supervisors may then be merged; in many Trusts, it is usual for the Clinical and Educational Supervisor to be the same Consultant or GP.

CPD Events

Continuing Professional Development

Medical Education at Medway Hospital holds CPD for those who are involved in supervision of doctors in training and medical
students extremely highly. To support this we have a series of CPD events for educators which we’d encourage individuals to
attend which will benefit self development and can be used as CPD evidence for educational appraisals to highlight being up to date with educational requirements.

Dates are available for sessions in April, May and June but further sessions will be available later in 2022 as well.
Any new supervisors wishing to have accreditation training please contact the Medical Education Team.
