Project Overview

The UNC School of Medicine Web Redesign project officially began in October 2005.  Although the school has had several web designs in the past few decades, this project was different than our traditional design overhaul:

  1. The site exists within a dynamic Content Management System (CMS). 
  2. UNC Health Care and UNC School of Medicine now have a coordinated look and feel.
  3. Most sites throughout the School of Medicine will share a common identity [see Participation: Who is Affected? for more information]

This project is a collaborative effort between the Dean’s Office, UNC Health Care’s Public Affairs & Marketing Office and Information Service Division (ISD) and UNC School of Medicine’s Office of Information Systems (OIS).


As you take a look around the new School of Medicine site, you'll notice the navigation has changed significantly from years past.  According to our surveys and interviews, most users found the School of Medicine site difficult to navigate.  We've met with all the school's administrative offices to determine the best way to organize the site; particularly for external audiences.  If you have any comments or suggestions about the navigation, please let us know.
