Reviewer Qualifications, Term Limits, and Responsibilities

Portfolio Program Reviewers can serve in a variety of ways:

  • Evaluate potential sponsor organization applications to the Portfolio Program
  • Review organization progress reports on activities from the sponsor’s portfolio
  • Provide support by serving as specialty-specific subject matter experts

Individuals interested in becoming Portfolio Program Reviewers must actively be working in their field. Physicians must be meeting the MOC requirements of their specialty Member Board. The following factors are considered in the selection process:

  • Three-year’s experience in health care related QI activities is preferred
  • Equivalent experience demonstrated through formal training, publications, teaching, coaching, and/or accomplishments in practice-related quality improvement
  • Adherence to the conflict of interest and confidentiality policies of ABMS and the Portfolio Program, including completion of a disclosure form to report any potential conflicts of interest
  • Skill in oral, written and web-based communication and the use of web-based programs to perform reviews; ability to participate in teleconferences as needed

Portfolio Program Reviewers are asked to commit to a three-year term. There are no term limits as long as individuals continue to meet Portfolio Program qualifications. Each Program Reviewer is expected to provide unbiased, thoughtful, and informative feedback to the applicants and the Portfolio Program. They are asked to complete two reviews during their term period.

Program Reviewers that wish to earn ABMS MOC® Part IV credit for their participation in the Portfolio Program must complete four reviews during their term period.
