Yale CV2 is an opportunity for faculty to highlight how they contribute to Yale School of Medicine, Yale University, and the academic world beyond in ways that are not fully captured on the Yale CV1. CV2 OVERVIEW VIDEO.

Additionally, faculty may submit a supplemental narrative on how COVID has impacted their work. This can include any professional or personal circumstances that have altered clinical, educational, or research/ scholarly activities. This optional COVID impact statement should be no longer than 500 words.

Yale CV2 has evolved to better capture information about the different aspects of faculty careers. The objectives of these revisions are to:

  • Develop more streamlined narrative statements
  • Focus data sections on easily obtained metrics
  • Emphasize that only the most applicable information should be included
  • Reduce duplicative text and data
  • Encourage the use of this document for mentoring purposes
For those with older versions of CV2, converting to the new format is largely a process of reorganizing and streamlining the document. A guide for covering older to current version of CV2 is included in the sidebar as a downloadable document. If you are not transferring information from the prior CV2, no need to utilize this supplemental guide.

Yale CV2 Outline

General and mission-specific activities (clinical, educational, and research/scholarship) are highlighted in narratives (CV2A). Select supporting data are then delineated (CV2B).

Please keep in mind the Faculty Tracks, Ranks, & Positions information (and, if applicable, YSM Ladder Faculty Track Metrics) for your current or proposed rank and track as you complete CV2. This should help you focus on activities most relevant to your carrier as you write the narratives (CV2A) and select supporting data (CV2B).

The narratives should focus on areas most relevant to a faculty's career. While potential topics to include in each of the narratives are described, other related activities can be included as appropriate. Narrative descriptions should be written in language that is comprehensible to faculty reviewers who may be outside of one’s academic subspecialty.

It has been requested that example narratives be available. Please keep in mind that every faculty has different focuses and strengths, but examples (login required) will be made available as narratives with the newer formatted become available.

Only include areas and any of the suggested sub-areas if you consider these noteworthy and important contributions. Do not repeat information within or across sections.
