Who needs to complete the survey?

If you’re a named postgraduate clinical supervisor, educational supervisor or equivalent, you'll be invited to complete the survey. The survey is directed at doctors who:

  • were a named clinical or educational supervisor at any point during the 2019/20 training year.
  • and worked in clinical roles in primary and secondary care between early March 2020 and the end of May 2020 (or for at least 50% of this time).

If you only teach undergraduate students, you're not eligible to take part.

Are you a clinical supervisor?

Clinical supervisors oversee a trainee's clinical work throughout a placement. They give feedback during the placement and provide a review of the trainee's performance to help educational supervisors determine if the trainee progresses to the next stage of their training.

Are you an educational supervisor?

Educational supervisors are responsible for the overall supervision and management of a trainee's development during a placement or series of placements. They help the trainee plan their training, achieve agreed learning outcomes and bring together all relevant evidence to determine if the trainee progresses to the next stage of their training.

Although these two roles are distinct, you may have responsibility for both.
