This document details the official CV format to be used by CUIMC faculty.

Faculty Activity Report

Per CDM policy, each salaried faculty member must have an annual one-on-one meeting with their Division Director (or the person they report to) to review accomplishments and challenges in the past calendar year and to set short- and longer-term career goals.

The suggested timeframe to complete annual reports and meetings is January-March of each year (for activities in the preceding calendar year).  

CUIMC is transitioning to a new online tool for use in 2021; for the current cycle, a fillable PDF is available for reporting activities between Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2019. This document follows the content of the previously used online tool and allows faculty members to record accomplishments and highlight teaching, research, and patient care activities in a format consistent with the CUIMC CV. The document is several pages long only because it includes all possible activities a faculty member can report on. Please complete only those sections that are relevant to your role/responsibilities at CDM.

The report should be completed and sent by email to your reviewer a few days prior to the in-person meeting. After the meeting, the report can be modified (if needed) and is eventually archived. If you have any questions about this CDM policy and process, please check with your Division Director, Section Chair, and/or Dr. Evie Lalla, Senior Associate Dean for Faculty Development.
