Additional Tips

  • If a correction is needed with your appointment, rank, or SGS status, or you would like to create a bio, please contact: ihpme.appointments@utoronto.ca.
  • Do not touch the outlined sections. Information will pull into these sections from other areas of the website. E.g. if you have research initiatives, are teaching courses, supervising postdoctoral fellows, or supervise/supervised students, these will pull into your bio.
Screenshot of the Research Projects, Primary Teaching Responsibilities and Postdoctoral Supervision sections which are surrounded by a thin outline to indicate that they are pulling the content.
  • Ignore the right-side menu except to add your photo.
