American Board of Pathology Announces Appointment of Jason Jarzembowski to the Test Development and Advisory Committee of Pediatric Pathology
Tampa, Jan. 15, 2019 - The American Board of Pathology (ABPath) announced the appointment of Jason Jarzembowski MD, PhD, the vice chair and assistant professor of the pathology department at the Medical College of Wisconsin, to its Test Development and Advisory Committee (TDAC) for Pediatric Pathology beginning in January of 2019. The committee is responsible for developing and reviewing the questions for the American Board of Pathology exam which assesses and certifies a physician’s education, knowledge, experience, and skills to provide high quality care in the pathology profession.
For a physician to be appointed to a TDAC, one must be considered an established subject matter expert in their subspecialty field while being updated on the latest patient care advances in the continually evolving field of pathology. TDAC committee members develop and review examination questions for statistical performance and relevance to current practice. They contribute to the validity of examinations by determining the content and distribution of items on examinations (exam blueprints). The TDACs also advise the ABPath on issues in their subspecialty area of expertise.
“As TDAC members, these physicians play a critical role in the development of the exams and are entrusted with maintaining the integrity of the board-certified designation. The appointment to a TDAC indicates the physician is highly regarded in the field of pathology and exemplifies the utmost standards of care,” states Rebecca L. Johnson, M.D., CEO of the American Board of Pathology.
Since 1971, the ABPath has appointed test committees for each specialty area of pathology. The committee consists of ABPath trustees and other pathologists or specialty physicians who are recognized experts in their respective disciplines. There are presently 14 ABPath TDACs.
