Your CUDoctors.com Profile: Less Work, Easier Access
CUDoctors.com is the School of Medicine’s online site that
provides profiles and contact information for physicians and advanced practice
providers who are part of University Physicians, Inc. (UPI).
CUDoctors.com receives more than 30,000
visits each month. And now, to reduce
redundancy of data entry and administrative burdens for providers,
CUDoctors.com is undergoing a complete redesign. The goal is to integrate the UPI CUDoctors
profile system with the School of Medicine Faculty Information Management
System (FIMS) and PRiSM, the School of Medicine’s annual faculty performance
review system. This is a joint effort between UPI and the School of Medicine to
help ensure that the most up-to-date information is presented on your profile
at all times.
What does this mean for you?
integration will allow us to share your profiles and contact information
securely across all three systems without double entry.
be able to use your UCD username and password to securely access your profile
- We will
be able to streamline information sharing with external systems such as
Children’s Hospital Colorado, University of Colorado Health, Vitals, Health
Grades, Medical Quest, departmental websites and others that need this type of
public profile information.
- FIMS will
become the central hub for faculty data.
An Update from the Center for Advancing Professional
By Elshimaa Basha
In the last few decades, simulation has become one of the
major pillars of medical education, as it allows for experiential learning and
enables learners to practice without risk to patients. At the Center for
Advancing Professional Excellence (CAPE), we utilize multiple simulation
modalities to teach and assess core clinical knowledge, skills and behaviors
needed by health care professionals throughout the continuum of their education
and into practice. We create, advance and research innovative programs that
train providers and teams in safe, effective, compassionate and high quality
care in order to improve patient care. In recent years, the CAPE has partnered
with the Academy of Medical Educators (AME) and the Office of Lifelong Learning
to act on this mission and support faculty development efforts.
Communication Skills Series Workshops
One of these efforts is the Communication Skills Series
workshops that are part of the AME faculty development sessions. The workshops
are held three times a year during the summer, fall and spring. The workshops
are highly interactive and are designed for new and existing faculty members
who are interested in developing, reinforcing and advancing their communication
skills in challenging conversations and contexts.
