Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To explore the utility of peer review (review by fellow interns or residents in the firm) as an additional method of evaluation in a university categorical internal medicine residency program.

DESIGN/PARTICIPANTS:

Senior residents and interns were asked to complete evaluations of interns at the end-of-month ward rotations.

MAIN RESULTS:

Response rates for senior residents evaluating 16 interns were 70%; for interns evaluating interns, 35%. Analysis of 177 instruments for 16 interns showed high internal consistency in the evaluations. Factor analysis supported a two-dimensional view of clinical competence. Correlations between faculty, senior resident, and intern assessments of interns were good, although varied by domain.

CONCLUSIONS:

An end-of-year attitude survey found that residents gave high ratings to the value of feedback from peers.
