How to become a supervisor

A supervisor may be any grade clinician who can demonstrate competence in the whole curriculum, which will often be an Acute Medical Consultant or Associate Specialist, or Radiology Consultant with advanced ultrasound experience (equivalent to FAMUS accreditation). Supervisors must have a complete understanding of the FAMUS curriculum, and be registered on the FAMUS database. As a guide, FAMUS accreditation for more than two years with regular ongoing experience would usually suffice to become a FAMUS supervisor.


Supervisors must be registered on the FAMUS database, which will require them to submit an application form to the FAMUS administrator and await approval by the FAMUS committee. For full details of how to apply including the application form see the Society for Acute Medicine website here.
