Curriculum Vitae (CV)

The Harvard Medical School's Curriculum Vitae for Academic Advancement, along with letters from internal and external referees and examples of scholarly work, provides the major evidence used during the evaluation of candidates for promotion. Therefore, accurate and complete reporting of contributions and achievements in the CV is essential.

The Harvard CV format is specifically designed to capture achievements recognized by the criteria. The website for the CV can be found at http://cv.hms.harvard.edu/.

Though several documents are still to be added, faculty can now access the Word-based templates for preparing their CVs, including a template with preformatted tables and hyperlinks to instructions for each section.

The Center for Faculty Development has previously offered seminars on CVs. Below are links to the resources/handouts available from each session:
