IDSA, HIVMA Seek Clinical Practice Guidelines Editor

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.

The successful candidate will be notified by November 1, 2016, with duties to commence shortly thereafter. A 3-5 year term is envisioned.
