Greetings First Aid and USMLE-Rx fans!
Each year more than 150,000 students and physicians trust First Aid for the USMLE, USMLE-Rx Qmax, First Aid Flash Facts, and First Aid Express videos for critical exam prep and curricular coursework. We hope that you have also benefited from these resources, and we invite you to consider joining our outstanding author team to revise these iconic publications for future generations of learners.
If you are passionate about the art of medical education, working on a First Aid or USMLE-Rx project is a great way to maintain and broaden your basic and clinical science knowledge, especially as it relates to your future medical career. Furthermore, you can enhance your CV and gain specific experience in medical education as part of your career path.
Each project typically runs 3-6 months and has an average time commitment of 5-10 hours per week. Most current and past authors found that these projects are flexible and accommodating for busy classroom and clinical schedules.
In addition to the opportunity to improve education for medical learners worldwide, you will receive publication credit, a stipend, and a single subscription to the USMLE-Rx product of your choice. We value and reward creativity, innovation, hard work, diligence, and open collaboration. Successful authors may be promoted to lead future revisions of First Aid/USMLE-Rx publications.
