A Primary Clinical Supervisor is the consultant who leads the team within your unit. In busy units, this person often changes partway during the term.

A Day-to-day Clinical Supervisor is often the team registrar, but can also be a consultant in charge of that shift.

Required Training

All Victorian Primary and Day-to-Day Clinical Supervisors must complete Understanding the Framework, Clinical Supervision and the AMC’s EPA module . Please contact your Health Service to access these videos or request access to the training resources here.
