All trainees require a supervisor.  The supervisor will be:

  • A Fellow of RNZCUC (or other approved by Education Committee).
  • Available to meet for formal supervision sessions totalling of at least 6 hours per year.  Discussions will typically cover cases, your progress through the training programme, and any professional challenges you’re facing.
  • Able to assist you with Core Skills List sign off, by either completing this themselves or helping you find appropriate Fellows or specialists.
  • Able to supervise you.
    • For registrars, this means:
      • Working with you 6 hours per week in the same facility.
    • For senior registrars, this means working in the same facility or, with approval from Education Committee, able to offer guidance remotely.

We recommend reading the supervisor policy, and finding your supervisor before starting your training programme.  Agreement forms should be sent to the Training Programme Coordinator (
