CONTEXT Core physician activities of lifelong learning, continuing medical education credit, relicensure, specialty recertification, and clinical competence are linked to the abilities of physicians to assess their own learning needs and choose educational activities that meet these needs. OBJECTIVE To determine how accurately physicians self-assess compared with external observations of their competence. DATA SOURCES The electronic databases MEDLINE (1966-July 2006), EMBASE (1980-July 2006… Expand

Observational Clinical Trial
The proportion of older acute care physicians (ACPs) has been increasing. Ageing is associated with physiological changes and research investigating how such age-related… Expand
ConditionsAgeing
InterventionOther
Self-assessment on the competencies and reported improvement priorities for pediatrics residents.
TLDR
Residents' self-assessment of their competencies increased by level of training, although residents rated themselves as least competent in medical knowledge and systems-based practice, even as PGY-3s. Expand
Self‐assessment and continuing professional development: The Canadian perspective
TLDR
The research suggests that physicians will benefit from learning programs that encourage them to reflect on their clinical practice, continuously seek answers to clinical problems they face, compare their knowledge and skills to clinical practice guidelines and benchmarks, and seek feedback from peers and their health care team. Expand
Evaluation of physicians' professional performance: An iterative development and validation study of multisource feedback instruments
TLDR
It was demonstrated that the three MSF instruments produced reliable and valid data for evaluating physicians' professional performance in the Netherlands and improvement of performance when using MSF was examined. Expand
Resident Self-Assessment and Learning Goal Development: Evaluation of Resident-Reported Competence and Future Goals.
TLDR
Senior residents appear to develop better skills and/or motivation to explicitly turn self-assessed learning gaps into learning goals, suggesting that individualized learning plans may help improve self-regulated learning during residency. Expand
A Systematic Review of the Use of Self-Assessment in Preclinical and Clinical Dental Education.
TLDR
The results showed limited information regarding any kind of systematic training of students on how to perform a self-assessment, and there was a trend for better performing students to underrate themselves and for poorer performers to overrate themselves, and for students to score themselves higher than did their faculty evaluators. Expand
How does the medical graduates' self-assessment of their clinical competency differ from experts' assessment?
TLDR
There was a wide discrepancy between the graduates' self-assessment and experts' assessment, particularly in the level of inadequate performance, and graduates in general, and those of younger age groups in particular, tend to overestimate their clinical skills and competency. Expand
A systematic review of evaluation in formal continuing medical education
TLDR
A valid, reliable, and adaptable CME evaluation questionnaire addressing variables in the second level is needed to allow comparison of effectiveness across CME interventions and to investigate the sustainability of intervention outcomes. Expand
Teaching Resident Self-Assessment Through Triangulation of Faculty and Patient Feedback
TLDR
The trend in improved concordance rates among senior residents suggests that prompting learners to triangulate feedback from multiple sources can lead to a shift in perspective about competency, and is generalizable to other competencies and educational settings. Expand
Self-Assessment of competence during post-graduate training in general medicine: A preliminary study to develop a portfolio for further education
TLDR
How physicians undergoing specialist training in general medicine rate themselves in different areas is examined and elements for self-assessment are suitable for integration into a postgraduate training portfolio. Expand
Assessing Psychologists in Practice: Lessons From the Health Professions Using Multisource Feedback
The aim of the present study was to conduct a systematic literature review of multisource feedback (MSF) instruments and to summarize the evidence of feasibility, reliability, generalizability,Expand

Defining and assessing professional competence.
TLDR
An inclusive definition of competence is generated: the habitual and judicious use of communication, knowledge, technical skills, clinical reasoning, emotions, values, and reflection in daily practice for the benefit of the individual and the community being served. Expand
A review of the validity and accuracy of self‐assessments in health professions training

  • Medicine
  • Academic medicine : journal of the Association of American Medical Colleges
  • 1991
TLDR
The validity of self-assessed performance was found to be low to moderate and did not improve with time in conventional health professions training programs, but effective training to improve validity and accuracy is available and feasible. Expand
Evaluating medical residents' literature‐appraisal skills
TLDR
After further validation in other settings, the assessment instrument in this study may be used to objectively assess critical-reading skills and provide feedback and measure outcomes for interventions designed to improve critical reading. Expand
Primary Care Residents Self Assessment Skills in Dementia
TLDR
To assess residents' ability to accurately self-assess their competencies related to a commonly presenting problem in geriatrics, a Standardized Patient, portraying an individual with early signs of dementia, was inserted into family medicine residents' clinic schedules. Expand
Comparison of self, nurse, and physician assessment of residents rotating through an intensive care unit.
TLDR
Self-rating by residents did not correlate to multiple-choice test scores and differed in some criteria with physicians' or nurses' evaluations, and different categories of evaluators assess different aspects of performance. Expand
Can family medicine residents predict their performance on the in-training examination?
TLDR
Residents cannot reliably predict their performance on the In-training Examination, and of special concern are residents scoring in the lowest quartile, since these residents greatly overestimated their performance. Expand
Physician language ability and cultural competence. An exploratory study of communication with Spanish-speaking patients.
TLDR
Physician self-rated language ability and cultural competence are independently associated with patients' reports of interpersonal process of care in patient-centered domains, and this study provides empiric support for the importance of language andcultural competence in the primary care of Spanish-speaking patients. Expand
A randomized trial of continuing medical education.
TLDR
There was no spillover effect on clinical problems not directly covered by the program, and the documented quality of care provided by study physicians rose and differed from that provided by control physicians. Expand
General practitioners' self ratings of skills in evidence based medicine: validation study
TLDR
The validity of self ratings of competence in evidence based medicine was evaluated and a blinded validation in general practice was conducted. Expand

TLDR
Multisource feedback (MSF), or 360-degree employee evaluation, is a questionnaire-based assessment method in which rates are evaluated by peers, patients, and coworkers on key performance behaviors, and is gaining acceptance as a quality improvement method in health systems. Expand
