Faculty Profile Instructions

Overview 

All YSPH faculty members have a profile page located on the YSPH website. Your profile page is an informational page about you for students, Yale faculty and staff, and for the general population outside of Yale. Your profile page contains information about your research, publications, professional activities, etc. The link to your profile page appears on any Yale website with which you are affiliated. While Denise Meyer, YSPH’s web coordinator, can provide assistance, it is your responsibility to populate your profile page within the first 30 days of your appointment. 

In addition to the faculty directory your profile appears on your department website and on other Yale affiliated organizations that set up a faculty list. These pages get high google rankings so it behooves you to devote time to completing your profile page. 

Instructions 

To populate or make changes to your profile page, click on your profile, scroll to the bottom and click on the button that says "Edit this Profile". Use your NetID and password to enter the database, which is fairly straightforward, there are training videos and documentation from the Web Group (ysm.editor@yale.edu or phone (203) 737-7932). 

Headshots 

Faculty photo sessions are typically held in September, October and November, but if you already have a high resolution headshot you can upload that temporarily (it must be 1200 pixels high minimum). You will receive an email notifications from the YSM Communications office.

Priority Data Fields 

Fields on your profile page that are considered priorities are: 

  • Bio - required 
  • Research Brief Summary 
  • Research interest keywords (both MESH and Public Health Keywords) 
  • Selected publications (you can cherry pick your most important or recent 6-10)  
  • Activities (tab says “Activity Map”) 

There is a button on the upper left that will allow you to preview your page. The changes on the live site may take up to 24 hours to clear the caching system and appear on the live website. Questions? Denise Meyer (203-785-5476).
