Yale CV Part 1 (CV1)

Photo by Robert A. Lisak

Yale CV Part 1 (CV1) provides a summary of a faculty member’s academic career, including education, academic appointments, honors, grants, presentations, professional service, and publications. It is a representation of a faculty member’s professional achievements and contributions over the course of their career that are typically publicly visible. Periodically updating it can ensure that information is accurately captured and readily available and allows faculty and mentors to track progress. It also improves the efficiency of the preparation of materials for the reappointment and promotion process.

Having a common format for CVs facilitates consistency in the presentation of material, as well as the review and interpretation of the information. The current CV1 template instructions are outlined in detail below and a full-length sample is provided in the sidebar downloadable documents.

In addition, a CV Builder Tool is part of the Profile System used at YSM. Once data is entered into this system, it will populate faculty profile pages on the YSM website and can be used to generate draft version of CVs from which one can work. Please note that the tool is actively being evolved to correspond to the currently recommended format, but can still be used to generate a draft CV1. Several versions of CVs can be exported from the data:

  • A&P CV1- Meets the YSM’s requirements for the A&P process with information such as positions being proposed, etc.
  • Academic CV1- Meets common needs for general use, such as contact information and does not include positions being proposed, etc.
  • Public CV1- Allows for suppression of information faculty would like to remain private. When published, it will be publicly displayed on faculty YSM profiles.

Questions related to CV1, as well as other parts of the Appointments & Promotions process, can be directed to a faculty or staff member of the Faculty Affairs Department Team.
