ABSTRACT
Learning in the workplace is the basis of postgraduate medical education and training. Essentially, you learn to be a doctor by being one. Each training programme has formal educational activities. Doctors in training must undertake independent study, but the most important element of training is the opportunity to undertake medical practice, under appropriate supervision. Although supervision has such a vital role in medical education, it is probably the least investigated and least developed aspect of clinical teaching. This article reviews current understanding and requirements about supervision and concludes that these suggest new directions for developing supervisory practices.
