The Editor’s Pen
After an absence, some may say too long of an absence, The Pulse is back! We have a new look, a new way to distribute each issue, and a new way for you to access the stories. We’ve streamlined the submission and production process and developed a predictable timeline such that you will now receive The Pulse on a regular bi-monthly basis!
So what’s changed? Our new format is now fully electronic, instead of the PDF you are used to receiving. This new interactive format will still contain all of your favorite content (What’s Going On in Your Neck of the Woods, The Dean’s Corner, The Students’ Forum, and The Editor’s Pen, among others), but will be less cumbersome and more reader-friendly with links to access the stories in each section. All you have to do is simply click on the link that interests you and you will be taken to a separate webpage where you will see a list of all of the stories within that section. See a story that you want to read? Click on the link and you can read what you want when you want!
As a new addition, every issue will include instructions on how to access the School of Medicine Calendar of Events (yes, we have a calendar of events in Outlook, and we’ll remind you how to use it every issue!). We encourage departmental admins, seminar coordinators and group leaders to contribute events (seminars, volunteer opportunities, meeting schedules) to this calendar so this can become a centralized source for SOM events.
We hope you like our new look and our new regular distribution schedule. As in the past, should you have any questions, suggestions, or stories to be included in the next issue, do not hesitate to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or our copy editor Dr. Judy Crabtree (email@example.com).
It’s good to be back!
