Peer Review Assessments in Junior Doctors – Development and Pilot

This project is being undertaken by the Australian National University Medical School. The aim of the project is to develop and pilot a peer review process for use by junior doctors in the work place.     

All medical professionals require assessment of their own skills and competencies throughout their practice life. Peer review is a performance appraisal tool that uses reviewers who are the professional equals of an individual or group of people. Peer review has been demonstrated to be a potent modifier of professional behaviour.

The project will use the established ANU Medical School peer review model, and engage junior doctors to develop suitable assessment criteria and pilot an assessment cycle. Peer review will be part of the socialisation process of junior doctors this program lays the foundation to establish sustainable self assessment into professional life.

This project is scheduled for completion in June 2009.
