Application Deadline: August 31
IDSA and HIVMA have begun a search for a Clinical Practice Guidelines Editor, a new position to provide support to the development of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for the Society.
Development of timely, expert, up-to-date, and easy-to-use practice guidelines is one of the Society’s strategic priorities, and the guidelines are highly valued by IDSA members. Their value lies in the expert advice that members rely on to improve their medical practice and in the influence these guidelines have on administrative, regulatory and legal bodies.
This position was created by IDSA to facilitate the work of the Standards and Practice Guideline Committee (SPGC) to more efficiently and effectively serve the needs of the IDSA membership for evidence-based clinical guidelines. The Clinical Practice Guidelines Editor will work with IDSA staff, the SPGC, and multi-disciplinary teams of experts in support of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines. S/he will help ensure the quality, consistency and timeliness of IDSA’s clinical practice guidelines.
IDSA has appointed a Search Committee
to receive and review applications and nominations, which are due via email to
email@example.com by August 31, 2016. Short-listed candidates will be
informed of their status by September 30, 2016 and will be interviewed during IDWeek in New Orleans on Monday,
October 24, 2016.
The successful candidate will be
notified by November 1, 2016, with duties to commence shortly thereafter. A 3-5
year term is envisioned.
Those interested in the position should
provide a CV and a 2-4 page statement of qualifications, a basis of interest in
this position, availability to devote considerable time and energy to the
clinical practice guideline process, and information to address the following
- Academic and Publishing Record
