Optimising the Management & Supervision of Doctors in Training

CPD Points: 3
Duration: 3 Hours
Media Type: eLearning
Provider: Academyst (eMedicus Ltd.)


The nature of training and the doctors it has produced has altered radically over recent years but in many cases the evolution of how to supervise, manage and get the best from juniors has lagged behind. The challenges arising from more numerous but less experienced juniors, full shift systems, EWTD and more now have the potential to undermine service quality, financial security and competitiveness unless we rethink the management and supervision of doctors in training. This thought-provoking, intensive programme crystallises the issues and presents solutions to some of our most pressing challenges in this area.
