Yale CV Part 2 (CV2) UPDATED


Photo by Robert A. Lisak

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.

Teaching evaluations
Teaching evaluations are an important assessment of faculty teaching activities. While these are not included in CV2, it is noted that they should be reviewed as an important teaching metrics that faculty should review in summarizing their teaching activities. These will be submitted to the school directly by Departmental Appointments and Promotions Teams for review by Appointments and Promotions Committees (but are not sent to those writing Letters of Evaluation).
  • Teaching evaluations will be provided by your department directly to OAPD/interfolio.
  • While faculty do not submit these directly, it is helpful for faculty to review their teaching evaluations on a regular basis to better understand how their teaching is being received
  • Data sources are delineated on the OAPD Teaching Evaluation website- these include, but are not limited to:
    • Medhub for clinical teaching- aggregated teaching evaluations
    • Bulldogs for preclinical teaching
    • Other sources, as indicated

Data Educational Activities

Teaching Activities
  • Documentation of educational activities:
    • Overview of teaching activities over the past five years
    • Lists can be provided in the different subsections listed below
    • Other teaching activities are appropriately highlighted in the narrative on educational activities (Section A4).
  • Recommended format is as follows:
    • Didactic teaching activities over the past five years
      • Learner, course, role, year(s), average annual instructional hours
    • Clinical teaching activities over the past five years
      • Learner, setting, role, year(s), average annual instructional hours
    • Other teaching activities over the past five years
      • Learner, setting, role, year(s), average annual instructional hours
  • Data sources
    • This data will need to be manually tracked/entered
  • Primary Mentoring Roles:
    • List mentees for whom you have served as a primary/significant mentor over the past five years
    • You may also include any earlier mentees who have gone on to distinguished careers and are now senior leaders in your field
    • If you are a program director, those in the program that are not specifically mentees are best highlighted in the narrative on educational activities (Section A4)
    • Other mentoring activities and accomplishments of prior mentees are also appropriately highlighted in the narrative on educational activities (Section A4)
  • Recommended format is as follows:
    • Name of trainee: (example: Jane Doe, MD)
    • Position and period of mentorship: (examples: Yale Medical Student; 2006-2017 / Postdoctoral Fellowship; 2016-2020)
    • Research/thesis project: (examples: Impact of research experiences in medical school on pursuit of careers in academic medicine / Role of the oral microbiome in asthma)
    • Presentations/publications: (examples: 4 publications (see CV references #14, 18, 26, 35); 3 poster presentations at the Annual Meeting of the American Thoracic Society (ATS), 4 oral presentations at ATS and Keystone Symposium on Asthma)
    • Awards & honors: (examples: Invited oral presentation at Annual Meeting of AAMC after peer-review of abstracts / Recipient of an NIH/NIAID K01 award)
    • Current position: (examples: Resident, Internal Medicine, UCSF / Associate Research Scientist, Internal Medicine/Infectious Diseases; Yale School of Medicine)
