American Medical Foundation Three-Tiered Approach
1. Our parent organization, the American Medical Foundation for Peer Review and Education, (AMF), provides good faith physician and medical staff peer review, specialty department assessment, and fully integrated, entire hospital quality-of care evaluation for institutions faced with quality concerns.
If requested, the Foundation for Advanced Medical Education, (FAME
), provides effective post peer review, on-site monitoring and proctoring of clinical practice techniques, on-site education, and preceptorship programs for training physicians utilizing new medical devices, procedures and other therapeutic interventions, and provides assistance with credentialing.
3. For institutions needing additional solutions to their problems, we offer arbitration, mediation, and expert hearing officers. When requested, the Foundation will work with hospital counsel to help avoid legal pitfalls and to assure due process for physicians involved in peer review and hearings.
