Secondary Care and Public Health Pathway

Recognition of trainer process

It is very important that clinical and educational supervision is only provided to trainees by GMC recognised Named Clinical* and Educational Supervisors.

If a supervisor is not recognised, the GMC could decide this period of training does not count towards CCT and the trainee would have to extend their training time.

For trainees, it is equally important to check that Named Clinical and Educational Supervisors are GMC recognised, for every post. This information can be gained by asking them directly by and checking the GMC website.

*For Public Health, this is known as a Named Project Supervisor.
