Under the AMC’s National Framework for Prevocational Medical Training, health services are required to offer training and support for Term Supervisors, Primary Clinical Supervisors and Day-to-day Clinical Supervisors to address any identified knowledge or skill gaps [1].

Term Supervisor training under these revised standards is mandatory within three years from implementation of the Framework in 2024.

PMCV’s Prevocational Supervisor Training package comprises of six training videos, supplementary materials such as guidelines, position descriptions and templates, and links to resources published by the AMC.

Training and Support for:

Directors of Clinical Training (DCT)/Supervisors of Training (SiT)

Term Supervisors

Clinical Supervisors

Medical Education Officers (MEOs)

Delivery Format

There are three different ways to access the package:

  1. Learners can access the videos via their health service Learning Management Systems (LMS) and uptake may be monitored at the local level.
  2. Learners who do not have access to their health service LMS can also access the videos directly by completing the below request form.
  3. If health services would prefer to deliver the training face-to-face at their health services, a facilitated slide deck can be requested. Please note, that the facilitated slide deck is best delivered by a staff member who has already familiarized themselves with the Framework, such as a DCT or SiT.

Please note that the required training must be completed within three years, however it is recommended that you complete them prior to the start of the 2024 clinical year. PMCV will be monitoring the uptake of the modules with health services. EPAs will be formally implemented in 2025.

In addition to the required training videos, there are an additional three videos which new prevocational term supervisors may find useful. In particular, it is highly recommended that supervisors who have not completed relevant training with a special college, complete this additional training to support them in their ongoing delivery of prevocational medical training and supervision.
