Abstract

Peer learning represents a shift away from traditional peer review. Peer learning focuses on improvement of diagnostic performance rather than on suboptimal performance. The shift in focus away from random selection and toward identification of cases with valuable teaching points can encourage more active radiologist engagement in the learning process. An effective peer learning program relies on a trusting environment that lessens the fear of embarrassment or punitive action. Here we describe the shortcomings of traditional peer review, and the benefits of peer learning. We also provide tips for a successful peer learning program and examples of implementation.
