Faculty Profile Instructions
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.
To populate or make changes to your profile page
- Visit profile.yale.edu
- Use your NetID and password to enter the system
- Select your name and edit all applicable sections of your profile
The News and People Profile System is fairly straightforward, there are training videos and documentation. The News and People Profile System is managed by the YSM Office of Communications, if you have questions about the system please contact their support team at firstname.lastname@example.org or (203) 737-7932.
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)
