Job Description: The person chosen for this position will be a member of the Content Development Department for a medical specialty board that currently certifies approximately 90,000 physicians in Family Medicine. This department develops and maintains the content for high-stakes computer-based assessments administered online and in secure testing centers. Most of this content consists of multiple-choice questions and rationales that explain the answer.
While much of the work is performed individually with little direct supervision, the candidate who is selected will also work with two other editors and other members of the Content Development staff to edit, assemble, and maintain the documents, files, and databases required for reviewing and presenting examinations and other assessments.
In addition, the editors work with physicians who create this content, and also meet with groups of physicians over the course of the year to review the materials. This will require out-of-state travel several times a year. Occasional presentations to small and medium-size groups will also be required, including training sessions for physicians who write questions.
