Supervised Clinical Attachment

Supervised Clinical Attachment (SCA) is a period of attachment with a health professional (supervisor) who is an expert in a specific field of healthcare. SCA is designed to provide an individualised and hands-on learning experience, where the examples, scenarios and problems come in the form of real cases.

It is suitable for GPs who have identified a particular skill/knowledge they wish to upgrade or develop. The contact hours can be delivered face-to-face or in combination with other media, such as videoconferencing/ teleconferencing, case study discussions over the phone or email and at a time convenient to both the GP and the supervisor.
