Preceptor training

Preceptor training

You will complete a one-day workshop, tailored specifically to EVOLVE intern preceptors. This will help ensure that all interns are given fair and valid assessment throughout the programme. You will have some pre and post-course work to complete with your intern. However, your intern can start work before you have completed your preceptor training. You must attend preceptor training within 2 months of becoming a preceptor.

Preceptor training is provided free of charge but you need to arrange your own transportation to and from the venue. These are held in the main centres around the country in February and again at the end of for preceptors who have an intern starting midyear. Training is valid for 3 years before a refresher course is required. If a preceptor takes an intern each year, they only need to complete a refresher course every 6 years.
