Practice visit review process for RACMA Fellows & AFRACMAs
This program is limited to 15 participants to ensure quality learning outcomes

Practice visits have been developed by a number of specialist medical colleges to support an observational peer review process that provides the ability to obtain peer feedback, reflect on practice, change practice and document changes in practice. In New Zealand review indicated that those having this type of peer review found this the most useful method of improving their practice and were very positive about the process. Reviewers also found practice visits a very useful way to reflect on their own practice.  It was decided to pilot a practice review process for RACMA and Dr Lee Gruner agreed that she would develop a process and pilot with three Fellows. The practice visit process of a number of colleges was reviewed and a draft process developed and refined with input from a senior Fellow from New Zealand and the college CEO.  The process has now been piloted with three Fellows and is ready for final discussion and input prior to implementation.
