Peer Review of Teaching

The Peer Review of Teaching program has two purposes: formative evaluations (requested by the faculty member for their own personal growth as an educator) and summative evaluations (formal evaluations that can be included in annual evaluations and for promotion and tenure consideration).

Formative and Summative Evaluations of large group teaching (lectures and team-based learning), small group teaching (facilitation, problem-based learning), and clinical or bedside teaching are available for all faculty.

  1. All faculty members with significant classroom teaching assignments (greater than 6 hours of lecture) must be reviewed with a summative evaluation annually.
  2. The summative review must be part of the faculty member’s annual evaluation.
  3. Faculty members seeking promotion in rank must have three summative evaluations completed as a part of their portfolio prior to seeking promotion.
  • This program is for peer review of medical student and resident teaching designed for a variety of settings.

Peer Review of Teaching Forms available soon.
