This paper describes the application of external review to a physical therapy practice setting. The roots of the approach are examined in terms of consultation, accountability, and recognition of professionalization in physical therapy. The use of the structured interview as a data-gathering instrument is presented and the estimating of validity, reliability, and practicality is discussed. Implications for the use of external review as a tool in quality assurance are explored.
