Peer Evaluations: A key feature of traditional professions like medicine is self-policing and regulation. Clearly, we are seeing this eroded every year by increased government oversight and one of the reason cited is that physicians do not address problem colleagues. To do this, we must become comfortable with evaluating our peers. Thus, we are proving you with an opportunity to practice this skill in a limited fashion and also hopefully receive peer feedback of your own. A brief, anonymous peer evaluation tool is available at this link. You are encouraged to evaluate as many of your peers as possible based on small group interactions as well as day-to day ward encounters.
Evaluation criteria: Peer evaluations are not used for any grading purposes. They are not reviewed by the clerkship director until after grades have been assigned. You will receive the feedback from these evaluations and they are given to you alone.
