Performance appraisal of teaching faculty in medical institutions is an important and indispensable activity. This must be carried out periodically to ascertain the quality of output produced by faculty members under different domains and the kind of help/support which they might need to strengthen the ongoing activities. A number of techniques have been employed in different settings for performance appraisal, depending on the local requirements, available resources, and other logistics support. In conclusion, the task of performance appraisal carries immense significance in medical institutions. However, considering the availability of multiple such frameworks, it is essential that each institution should consider the pros and cons of different frameworks and then take a well-informed decision.
