From a Student to a Rocket Clinician-Scientist: Secrets of an Old Supervisor.

There isn’t a magic formula for being a good teacher and academic supervisor. During this presentation I will share my personal experience of more than 30 years of training of young clinicians and scientists. It has to be recognised that power and authority granted to the supervisor are grounded in responsibility to shape the minds of future generation of clinicians and scientists.

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Share knowledge about different roles of a Scientific Supervisor
  • List the challenges and rewards of being a Scientific Supervisor
