We offer a variety of workshops to provide faculty with the tools necessary to effectively manage their academic careers here at UC Davis. It is particularly important that new faculty and those new to UC Davis attend these workshops, but it can also be helpful for faculty who are not new to UC Davis Health.

MyInfoVault is the official merit and promotion system for the University of California, Davis. It is a web-based system and database designed to streamline the academic review process by reducing redundant data entry, allowing remote review of packets, and reusing data for many purposes. This is a very basic, introductory course intended to help faculty get started using the program.

MyInfoVault is a useful tool to:

  • produce and keep up to date CV’s and NIH Biosketch forms
  • store data related to publications, service, grants/contracts, honors, etc
  • link to PubMed for easy access of publications

This course is not currently being offered. We hope to offer it again in the fall of 2018.
