Apply to be a Peer Reviewer

You can apply to become a peer reviewer for MAP, Accreditation or both—you only need to submit one application. Applications are reviewed throughout the year.


  • Ensure that peer review is right for you. Review common questions about becoming a Peer Reviewer.

Next Steps

Once your application has been submitted, it will be reviewed by one of AAM’s program staff. This review is done monthly. Once accepted, you will be contacted via email and will receive an orientation packet. In order to be considered for site visits you will need to complete a Peer Review Profile about various areas and levels of expertise that is used to match you with the appropriate site visit.
