clinical tutor

clinical tutor

(1) A medical doctor—usually a consultant or associate specialist—in the UK who assumes the responsibility for the day-to-day oversight of a trainee because it would be, for geographical reasons, difficult for the trainee’s usual educational supervisor to continue in that role.

(2) The doctor responsible for organising education and training in a particular hospital trust, and overseeing the organisational aspects of postgraduate professional learning. Each health district usually has a clinical tutor for hospital doctors and one for GPs.
