Training for supervisors of interns
Thank you for your commitment to providing supervision for interns undertaking prevocational training.
The Medical Council of New Zealand encourages those who provide supervision to interns in clinical attachments (clinical supervisors) to attend one of the training workshops we are holding. This training is part of Council’s ongoing work to support supervisors and offers the chance for you to network and share ideas with colleagues.
Connect Communications will be facilitating this training and senior Council staff will also attend.
