Psychology of the Sham Peer Review

Does the medical staff/hospital peer review process have psychological influences and effects?  You bet! An excellent article that dissects out the psychology of a sham peer review is available online in a PDF form.  Without getting into the psychology of reasoning, let's go to the article written by Dr. Lawrence R. Huntoon, a Neurologist practicing in New York according to the article dated 2007, as an Editorial in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons in 2007. The items covered in this excellent article are:
  • Psychology of the Sham Review Process
  • Psychology of the Attackers
  • Psychology of the Enablers
  • Psychology of the Physician Victim
