The College is seeking pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to join its working group for the entry-to-practice Jurisprudence, Ethics and Professionalism exam. The College is also recruiting pharmacists for the Knowledge Assessment Question Writers, Reviewers and Standard Setters Working Group, as well as pharmacy technicians for the Self-Assessment Question Writers and Reviewers Working Group.

We welcome applications from pharmacists and pharmacy technicians who have the knowledge, skills and experience to contribute to the development and review of case-based and multiple-choice questions for these assessment tools. Question writers, reviewers and standard setters play a vital role in supporting the College’s mandate. Their work helps ensure the competency of Ontario’s current and future pharmacy professionals and supports the delivery of safe, quality and ethical care to Ontarians.

While training will be provided by the College, experience in writing and reviewing exam questions is considered an asset. As a member of one of these working groups, you are expected to participate in four to six meetings per year over a three-year term and sign a confidentiality agreement.

If you are interested in volunteering as a writer (to create exam questions), a standard setter (to review and set standards to exam questions), or an exam reviewer (to review draft exams) for the Jurisprudence, Ethics and Professionalism exam, the Knowledge Assessment or Self-Assessment Tool, please complete the appropriate online application by August 18.

While we appreciate all expressions of interest received, we will only reach out to those who have been selected to participate. However, applications may be retained for consideration for future working groups.

For more information, please contact jurisprudence@ocpinfo.com (for Jurisprudence, Ethics and Professionalism exam Working Group) or QA@ocpinfo.com (for Knowledge Assessment and Self-Assessment Tool working groups).
