Call for Technical Reviewers

Help Select the AIHA Connect 2025 Education Program

AIHA seeks active committee members to serve as PDC and/or Education Program technical reviewers

Purpose

A technical reviewer serves as a subject matter expert and reviews education proposal submissions to ensure they are scientifically sound, innovative, and relevant to the profession.

The technical review process occurs prior to the reviews by the Continuing Education Committee and Conference Program Committee. The feedback from technical reviewers assists these committees in the selection of the final AIHA Connect 2025 education program. The review process is blind, and no submitter information is shared. 

Time Commitment

Technical reviewers must be available to review submissions online between September 13-27, 2024. The time commitment, per proposal, is approximately 15-20 minutes and will vary based on the number of submissions received in each topic area. Most topics will have five (5) to ten (10) proposals, while more popular topics, could have as many as 50-80 reviews to complete. The exact number of proposals per reviewer is not known until after the submission deadline of September 11, 2024.

Deadlines

Each volunteer group is asked to email the names of four (4) reviewers (two for PDCs and two for the education program). The same two volunteers may review both PDCs and education sessions. This is the minimum number needed; more may volunteer to review, if desired.

Reviewers are not required to attend AIHA Connect 2025 but must be current, active AIHA committee members.

If volunteer names are not submitted, the committee leadership (Chair and Vice Chair) will be automatically assigned to take on review responsibility on behalf of their committee.

Technical Reviewer Town Hall

AIHA will host a Town Hall for Technical Reviewers to discuss the technical review process in detail and to answer any questions. The Town Hall can be accessed on Thursday, August 29, 2024 at 2:00 p.m. ET.

For more information, contact:

  • Diana Kane at 703-846-0753 regarding the main education program.
