KNOW HOW | Lessons for a New Professional Becoming a Clinical Supervisor

As a new professional, I’ve had to learn how to become a clinical supervisor. While I learned the needed skills, I was fortunate to have very supportive, talented colleagues, as well as consistent contact from clinic coordinators at local universities.

Here are some of the lessons that I’ve learned as I transitioned from student to supervisor.
