In a similar mindset to my last TFTC (http://www.drchrisharper.co.uk/blog/5-word-appt-objectives) I have been considering how I can best lay foundations for my role as a clinical supervisor come September. In hindsight, when I was a student encountering a new supervisor it was very rare to have any meaningful interaction with a new supervisor before being thrown into a clinical situation.
So I am going to attempt to actively change that for any students I am supervising. I have set out a simple document explaining my expectations from students and what they can expect from me. I will attempt to explain this in person if time allows but if not then at least I can give students this on our first clinic together and build good relationships from there. As always I am very happy to hear any feedback from both current students and supervisors if you think any aspects could be improved further.
