Educational Supervision for ST2s in hospital posts
This is a reminder that if you have been allocated an ST3 trainee, you are also responsible for that trainee’s educational supervision whilst they are in any preceding ST2 hospital post. The trainee’s name will appear on your ePortfolio at the start of their hospital post.
The trainee is advised to make contact with you before their hospital post begins. Please ensure you arrange to meet and/or contact the trainee before or early on in their hospital post.
