The Board uses peer review in selected competency investigation after the Board finds evidence of one or more possible violations of the accepted standard of care. Peer Reviewers are usually selected from physicians who practice in the same specialty as the physician under investigation. The Peer Reviewer’s job is to assist the Board in determine whether, and to what extent, a physician has breached the applicable standards of care in a certain case. Peer review is the final step of the investigative process and must be completed before the Board can make a decision on a case. The Peer Reviewer’s timely submission of a report to the Board is vital to expeditious resolution of the case.
