Guide for Conducting Peer Reviews of Community-Based Health Sciences Education Programs

During 2014-2015, CapacityPlus and the Medical Education Partnership Initiative (MEPI) conducted a peer review of the community-based education component of the medical education program at the University of Zimbabwe College of Health Sciences. One purpose of the activity was to expose colleagues in the MEPI community to the process and tools of conducting a peer review. This step-by-step guide to the peer review process is targeted at educators and leaders in health sciences faculties and medical schools. While primarily focused on MEPI-supported schools, it is expected to be of assistance to health professions schools internationally that are interested in such an evaluation and improvement approach.
