We're seeking authors and a methodology fellow to update the 2017 AACE Clinical Practice Guideline for the Management of Dyslipidemia and Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease. Authors should be current AACE Community members in good standing, active in practice, and able to commit to 1 to 2 years of development.
Task force authors and the methodology fellow will participate in video conferences and submit work via email. Based on assignments by the chair, authors will help determine scope, PICO questions, inclusion/exclusion criteria, and selection of evidence; develop and vote on recommendations; and fulfill ICMJE criteria for authorship.

Experience in epidemiology, guideline development, or evidence-based medicine is preferred but not required as AACE will provide training to members of this guideline task force.

The fellowship is a fantastic learning, mentorship, and networking opportunity for trainees and faculty interested in evidence-based medicine and guideline methodology.
The goal of the program is to expand the number of AACE members with training and experience in evidence-based CPG development to create a pipeline for future AACE guideline authors and chairs and CPG Oversight Committee members.
