Put Your Talents to the Test – Seeking Exam Item Writers

Are you looking for a challenging and impactful volunteer opportunity? Are you interested in advancing evaluation of PA students? If so, you are invited to apply for one of the 17 open positions on PAEA’s Exam Development Boards for 2017.

The Assessment Council is recruiting new item writers for all of its Exam Development Boards:

  • Internal Medicine and Family Medicine End of RotationTM exams
  • Emergency Medicine and General Surgery End of Rotation exams
  • Women’s Health, Psychiatry and Behavioral Health, and Pediatrics End of Rotation exams
  • PACKRAT™ exam

Plus, we are looking for writers to help develop a new exam product – an objective, standardized evaluation of students’ medical knowledge as a component of their readiness for graduation. We expect to launch this new product in 2019.

Members of other PAEA councils and committees are welcome to apply for Exam Development Board positions. Applications will be accepted for this general call, and assignments to a specific board will be based on the needs of the committee and preferences of the accepted volunteers.
