161683 - Teaching In-Practice Activites - Introduction

  • : Online

The GP supervisor has been defined as ‘a general practitioner who establishes and maintains an educational alliance that supports the clinical, educational and personal development of a resident.’ The role of the GP supervisor is diverse, but one of the most important elements is that of clinical teacher. 

Depending on the stage of training of their registrar, GP supervisors have a requirement and responsibility to deliver regular in-practice teaching. This educational activity provides an introduction to the skills required to plan and deliver a range of in-practice teaching activities, as featured in the GP supervisor educational platform, SupportGPT.

Relevance to General Practice

Vocational general practice training in Australia is based on the ‘apprenticeship-model’, where GP registrars consult with patients in the community under the supervision of experienced GP supervisors. While education and training is also delivered at external workshops provided by the host Regional Training Organisation (RTO), the vast majority of learning occurs in the practice setting. The role of the GP supervisor as clinical teacher, assessor, mentor and role model cannot be underestimated. 

With its focus on facilitating practical skill development in clinical teaching of GP registrars, this ALM is therefore highly relevant to general practice and enhancing quality patient care.
