Faculty profiles draw prospective students, residents, fellows, postdoctoral fellows and faculty to our school. They communicate our strengths to individuals, encouraging them to join our educational and research community. Clinicians: your profile also assures potential patients that they can trust you with their health concerns.
Members of the media consult our faculty profiles when seeking subject experts, and will refer to yours for background information if they want to interview you. Your profile also supports the stories we publish to the world as an authoritative source.
In addition to publicizing your publications, awards, grants and specialties on the medical school website, your eCV-driven profile forms the core of your presence on the UBMD website (if you are a member of the practice plan).
