  • Strong attention to detail and design aesthetic;  

  • Curiosity in emerging training development tools and ability to quickly research, learn and utilize new technologies.

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills including strong presentation skills;

  • Strong organizational, project management, and analytical skills;

  • Comfort in a fast-paced environment and ability to work well under pressure;

  • Experience in curriculum development for electronic health records (EHR) and/or other computer systems preferred, but not required.
