Our Peer Reviewers

Our peer reviewers are physicians specifically trained to assess a physician’s performance in order to help continuously improve patient care.  

Peer reviewers are selected through a comprehensive screening and recruiting process. Once selected, peer reviewers undergo a review of their own practice. Once successfully completed, physicians then begin their training to become a peer reviewer.

With an emphasis on education and continuous quality improvement, we make every effort to ensure the scope practice of our peer reviewer is a relevant match to that of the physician they are reviewing.

Peer reviewers use our competence and general assessment procedures and tools, to help physicians reflect on their practice and identify opportunities to improve. Reviewers also receive training in facilitating feedback, coaching and assisting the physician to identify resources for practice improvement. 

Peer reviewers play a key role in medical self-regulation by supporting physicians to meet high standards of practice throughout their professional lives.
