Internal reviews require a dedication to organization. No matter how organized an individual or program may be, keeping up with internal review best practices should not be limited to prior routine.

Program directors and program coordinators should participate as members of internal review committees for other programs. The opportunity will provide quality learning experiences as well as a chance to network with peers in other programs on the review process. It provides a chance to discuss and analyze best practices from multiple angles.

As an added bonus, residents who participate on another program’s internal review committee can become more involved in their own program and have better insight as to the evaluation and teaching that is involved.

It is impossible to teach internal review experience without getting involved.

This week’s tip is from Insider’s Guide to the ACGME Site Visit, Second Edition by Kathryn Andolsek, MD, MPH, and Shepard Cohen.
