Each core rotation provides rotation-specific supervision by medical school faculty. While at non-Dartmouth Health sites, residents have at least 1 hour of clinical supervision per week provided by the site-specific faculty physician. Family and group co-therapists provide family and group supervision. Specific psychotherapeutic supervision is arranged on a case by case basis, such as for trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), time-limited dynamic therapy and dialectical behavior therapy.
