MMed cohort supervision: A path out of the swamp?

Chris Rout, Ted Sommerville, Colleen Aldous

Abstract


The authors present the case for collaborative cohort supervision (CCM), including both master’s students and novice supervisors, as a possible way to rapidly increase the number of supervisors needed to address the recent implementation of a compulsory research component to specialist registration with the Health Professions Council of South Africa. Different models of CCM are discussed and possible pitfalls highlighted.
