The world of postgraduate medical education is changing, and educational supervisors need the knowledge and skills to be able to do their job effectively. Many of those who want to do this job well feel unprepared for the task.

Essential Guide to Educational Supervision is a handbook for educational supervisors everywhere. The topics covered are generic to medical education, whatever the specialty. Although the focus is on postgraduate medical education, many of the topics in this book are also applicable to undergraduates.

Essential Guide to Educational Supervision is written for:

Consultants and General Practitioners who work with trainees

Educational supervisors

People who organise postgraduate training programmes

Written by experts in their field, each chapter gives an overview of key topics in educational supervision with references and further resources. The book provides evidence and theory when applicable, but is deliberately practical, with case studies and tips for good practice as well.
