The assessment of a trainee doctor’s performance in a clinical setup is not only challenging and important, but is also necessary to assure standards, judge competence to practice, set targets for improvements, and most importantly to protect patients. Multi source feedback (MSF) / Mini-Pat (Mini Peer Assessment Tool) / Team Assessment Behavior (TAB) are formative assessment tools that were developed to assess the professional behaviors and attitudes in health professionals, and to continually improve an individual’s team working skills. This article critically evaluates the use of Team Assessment Behavior (TAB) as an assessment tool for professional behavior in trainee doctors in the U.K, and concludes whether it is an ideal tool for improving professional behavior in trainee doctors.
