Looking for a continuing medical education course?
Trying to find the date of a departmental grand rounds? Unsure about
university holidays? You can now get the calendar information you're
seeking on the School of Medicine's faculty resources tab, part of
the university's online portal at http://my.jhmi.edu/tab/som-faculty.
A new Calendar Depot, which was recently added
to the tab, consolidates links to calendars from throughout Hopkins
Medicine and the university. This added feature makes it unnecessary
for users to search throughout various Hopkins web sites for the particular
calendar that they need. It can also help to identify possible scheduling
conflicts for events being planned.
Another recent addition to the tab is an "Important
Announcements" section, highlighting newsy items of interest
to faculty and those who support them. (The tab is now accessible
to all School of Medicine staff members.)
Developed by the Office of Policy Coordination
with significant input from faculty and staff throughout the school,
the faculty tab was introduced in the winter of 2008 as a way to improve
awareness of online resources that are already available to them and
to organize them in one place. Resources that pertain to teaching,
research, clinical practice, regulatory issues and the promotions
process, among other topics, are included.
