BoardVitals contributors are experts from top tier academic and practicing institutions. These institutions include:
The primary author for each question bank is board certified in that specialty, and, in most cases, has taken and passed the initial or re-certifying exam within the past few years. The vast majority of the BoardVitals primary authors have scored in the top tier on their Step exams.
In addition to the primary author, BoardVitals typically contracts with dozens of writers for each question bank. From those, they usually keep about a third. Each of the writers are assigned a specific portion of the blueprint for their specialty/sub-specialty.
BoardVitals uses a multi-tiered editing process. Each question from the author and the contractors are run past their internal team of medical editors, which checks for medical accuracy, grammar, formatting, and that the content follows the blueprint.
The content is then continually updated based on feedback from faculty and students. The feedback loop goes to the BoardVitals editors, who review each piece of feedback. New updates are added as the feedback is verified. They process hundreds feedback emails per week, many of which suggest updates or fixes across their 60,000+ questions.
