Post Master’s Certificate Program
Transitioning from Clinician to Supervisor
Post Master’s Certificate in Advanced Supervision
Supervision is a critical element in workforce development since supervisors exert enormous influence on the worklife of supervisees and the nature of care provided to clients. However, many individuals moving into supervisory positions have never received formal training in how to supervise. The objective of the certificate program is to improve the capacity of clinicians moving into the role of supervisor to supervise, train, and mentor their supervisees in the workplace.
The model of supervision taught through this 40 hour program is a pragmatic, functional approach to supervising. Its focus is on enhancing supervisor competencies.
