Clinical placement is an integral part of medical radiation science student learning and development. Clinical placement provides opportunity for students to apply their theoretical knowledge and enable students to prepare for their future professional practice. Clinical supervisors have a significant role in this process to facilitate student learning on clinical placement. However, clinical supervisors often have little formal training to supervising students on placement and will default to their own previous learning experience. There is a need to provide an educational perspective from tertiary education partners to assist medical radiation practitioners in their role of supervising students. This paper is a collaboration between Australian Nuclear Medicine University partners with the aim to support and educate nuclear medicine technologists, and indeed all medical radiation practitioners to competently fulfil their role regarding student supervision and assessment.
