Educator MSF

The educator multisource feedback tool

Sign up for the system here:

This tool supports educators’ practice and educational appraisal in the same way as the colleague MSF tool supports clinical practice and informs appraisal.

  • Have you ever wondered how effective a supervisor you are? 
  • Are you curious about whether there might be a gap between your intentions and the actual perceptions of your trainees?
  • Would you like constructive feedback on your strengths as a supervisor, together with potential areas for development?

Supervision is central to the success of clinical education and training.  The online multisource feedback tool (MSF) has been specifically designed to give supervisors the opportunity to get individual feedback from their learners on the quality of their supervision, in exactly the same way as the colleague MSF which supports clinical appraisal is used to gain feedback on clinical practice.
