Supervisor of Training Workshops
The College’s supervisors of training are a vital part of the training program. To develop and enhance the skills of our supervisors, the College is running four "Supervisor of Training Workshops” in 2016.

The program will include sessions on feedback, remediation of the poorly performing trainee and time for discussion and questions from supervisors.

Please click here to review a program outline.

The workshops will be facilitated by Dr Bronwyn Avard (Director – Canberra Hospital) and A/Prof Bruce Lister (Director of Professional Affairs - Education, CICM).

The dates and locations are as follows,
     • Thursday July 28 in Sydney
     • Thursday October 27 in Adelaide
     • New Zealand (dates to be confirmed)

If you are a supervisor (from Australia and New Zealand) who lives outside of one of the above regions, the College will provide a return economy airfare and a nights’ accommodation if required.

If you would like to register for any of the dates listed above, please click this link and follow the prompts.

Please note that as a supervisor, it is expected you attend one of the workshops as this is an opportunity for you to not only learn new skills/techniques but also to network with supervisors from other regions. Supervisors can also claim CPD points for these workshops.

The final deadline for reserving a place at the Sydney Workshop is Tuesday 19 July 2016.
 

Flexible Training Options
The College understands that there are times when trainees will need to take extended leave or reduce their clinical hours. Such times include: parental leave, interupted training and time overseas.
