2016 saw the introduction of many new faces - with 19 new Fellows being appointed as Supervisors of Training. As a part of further learning and training, the College also conducted Supervisor of Training Workshops in Australia. Facilitated by Dr Bronwyn Avard and A/Prof Bruce Lister, 48 Supervisors attended workshops this year and participated in sessions on providing feedback and remediation techniques for poorly performing trainees.
Feedback from the workshops was very positive with the role playing, interactive discussions, and Q&A sessions being well received. The workshops were a valuable networking tool for Supervisors (especially Supervisors from rural areas) and provided an opportunity for Supervisors to ask questions about the current curriculum. The College would like to say a very big thank you to Bronwyn Avard and Bruce Lister for conducting these workshops and look forward to having them on board again in 2017. The College has proposed the following locations for 2017 Supervisor workshops;
- New Zealand (location to be confirmed)
Final dates and registration information will be advertised on the website and in the e-News early in the New Year.
From all of the aff at the College, thank you again for your hard work and support to our trainees this year and we wish you a pleasant break over the holiday period.
