Peer Review Boot Camp

Intensive Training for Committee Chairs, Reviewers, and Quality Staff

Overcome today’s most challenging peer review issues

The medical staff often views peer review as punitive, when it can actually be a positive force for practitioner improvement. This course offers practical, in-depth training for physicians recently appointed to peer review positions, existing peer review leaders who seek new ideas on how to improve their case review and OPPE/FPPE methods, and staff who support peer review. Taught by experienced physician leaders from the practitioner’s perspective, Peer Review Boot Camp’s format features a varied curriculum of group exercises, clinical case reviews, and case studies, with time for small group discussions and segments on ambulatory and ACO settings.

Client Testimonial

“This is a great course for peer review—new members or experienced reviewers. There were so many great points and helpful suggestions. As chair of the peer review committee, this course will help me conduct meetings more efficiently and effectively. It will also help me orient new members more effectively and present our committee and our mission as much less intimidating.”
