Teachers bullying students watch

    I do a course with a clinical elements and the teachers quite often ***** about the students. Clinical supervisors now and in the past have pulled people up in front of patients and given them a dressing down. I fortunately have not really had this happen to me but I've seen it happen. I know that people have complained about this treatment and I personally have complained in the feedback form given to us for the clinical module.

    Recently one of the clinical supervisors has started to make comments. I don't wear the regular clinical trousers because I find them uncomfortable so I just wear regular black trousers. One day I was in clinic and she pointed out my black trousers to a colleague and they started laughing. Another time I over heard her saying she's stupid I am not sure she was talking about me but I think it was quite unprofessional. Also last year I got a first in my first exam for a module but yet when I put my hand up to answer questions in that module she acted like I didn't exist and never picked me, I eventually gave up. Another student has said that this particular lecturer criticized her in front of a patient and took over treatment only to find out the students assessment of the situation was correct, however there was no apology. I've also heard that she's been very funny with people; one minute nice then the next minute snappy.

    I am wondering if its anything to do with her personal life she has been with a boyfriend long term but he shows no signs of committing. What would people do in my situation?

    Complain about her to someone higher up, because by the looks of it she seems quite unprofessional and I would go as far as saying that what she is doing comes across as bullying.
