The American Osteopathic Conjoint Examination Committee on Pediatric and Adult Allergy and Immunology is actively searching for AOA-certified osteopathic physicians to assist the board in the following roles:
- Board Members
- Subject Matter Experts
Board Members are charged with helping establish and maintain high standards for certification of osteopathic physicians in the practice of [Specialty Name] and other related subspecialties. They may be required to participate in writing exam items and in administering board exams. Participation on the board requires attendance at in-person meetings (travel expenses are reimbursed by the AOA) and conference calls as needed. Board members will receive CME for writing items, attending exam-related meetings and administering exams.
Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) work closely with board members and staff to develop exam items. Individuals who participate in exam writing will be required to complete AOA-provided item writing training. Physicians who participate in exam construction will earn CME.
Examiners assist the board in the administration of written, oral and clinical examinations. Examiners may need to attend an orientation prior to serving. Examiners will receive CME credits for administering exams.
