Supervision for undergraduate trainees in clinical psychology - even though fundamental for their training - lacks systematic evaluation mechanisms in regard to the role and function of the supervisor. This paper presents a study taking aim at exploring clinical psychology trainees' perceptions about their supervisors and supervision. The survey was carried out using a five points Likert scale comprising 27 items. The sample was formed by 56 undergraduate students belonging to the ninth semester of Psychology School, undergoing their training under weekly supervision for at least one semester. From the point of view of the trainees under supervision, the evaluations were almost exclusively positive, in spite of theoretical orientation of the supervisor. This positive result is discussed in relation to: characteristics of the clinical learning process - in special regarding the evaluation forms used; possible idealization; and the moment of transition from student to professional, in which the undergraduate is situated. It is pointed out the need for discussion about the evaluation of the teacher/supervisor activities in clinical psychology.
