Philips Peripheral Clinical Sales Trainer in Singapore, Singapore

Clinical Instruction

A key component of the clinical trainer role is providing instruction to students based on a course syllabus. The CST handles the clinical training and follow-up of internal staff which could also mean that the training could take place in the cathlab.

The CST may also use textbooks or other written materials but relies heavily on cathlab simulations and co-travel on-site rotations. The CST is responsible for connecting the classroom material and its real-life application and for accommodating the varied learning styles and paces of students.

Clinical Supervision

The CST often has responsibility for coordinating student rotations or site visits and for helping students understand their clinical duties in different settings. The CST ensures that the clinical lessons tie in with classroom lessons that have already been completed so that students have the necessary knowledge base for their day to day work in the clinical environment. And of course the CST supervises the students he/she instructs during site visits and rotations, providing guidance as the students work with clinical staff in the cathlab.

Student Evaluation

The CST/I must conduct formal student performance evaluations, as well as occasionally providing informal feedback. Students rely on their CST for guidance regarding the effectiveness of their actions and decisions and for information about how they can improve in the clinical environment.

Mentoring

While not all students will look to their CST as a mentor, a CST should expect that some will. The CST may or may not be required to maintain formal office hours. In either case, the CST may provide mentoring and coaching to some of their students outside the formal evaluation and instruction arenas. The CST is also a role model for the type of behavior and mindset that is expected of professionals in his/her area, and he/she should keep that in mind in all interactions with students and in their presence.

Communication and Coordination

The CST needs to regularly communicate with his/her students, with the program director or coordinator and often with the corresponding classroom instructor. Communication with students revolves around course objectives, expectations and individual performance.

You will be required to:

Plan and deliver training sessions internally and also in the clinical environment;

Teach a range of clinical skills and measure competency;
