Career Development Resources

Individual Faculty Development Plans

In 2010 the PAS/APA produced a guideline document outlining the elements of an individual faculty development plan. This information may be useful for faculty in their own planning, or in preparation for meetings with their Mentoring Committee.

Format Your CV

The CV format requirements for the UNC School of Medicine have changed as of May 2014.  The updated CV policy can be viewed here. While several things are different, the main changes are to specify sections for newer forms of scholarship and the addition of separate sections for teaching, research, and service and engagement statements in place of the reflective statement.
