DipPOM supervisor information

Experienced perioperative medicine practitioners will plan and supervise the participant learning experience in the clinical setting.

These supervisors who hold the DipPOM have undertaken additional perioperative medicine supervisor training. They will also provide assessment opportunities and assist in facilitating workshops. 

Supervisors will spend up to an hour per week for each participant completing a topic in their clinical setting, and may have two to three participants allocated to them. 

Participants will also attend a workshop over one or two days and supervisors will play an important facilitating role to tie together the participant's learning experience.

We will run an introductory webinar for supervisors which will explain our expectations and provide information on navigating the online platform.
