Preparing for the Annual Review
Prior to your review there are a few things you can do to ensure the meeting is effective.  More information is available in our Tips for a Successful Annual Career Review brochure.

  1. Complete a Self Evaluation.  Each department has a customized review form (the forms for clinical and research faculty may be different as well).  Your department administrator or annual review coordinator can provide you with a copy of your form if you do not already have one.  While forms vary, there should be a section of your review that asks you to consider your career goals, both short- and long-term, and the support that you need to meet your goals.  This section of the form should be completed before the review so that your Reviewer can also prepare for the in-person meeting by reading your self evaluation.
  2. Update your CV in the HMS Format.  Your updated CV will capture your achievements for the year, which you should also discuss in your annual review.  For instructions on the HMS format or help with your review please refer to the CFDD Demystifying Promotions Series and Harvard CV template resource.
  3. Make a List.  Make a list of the things you would like to discuss during the conference and select a few critical items to ensure that these are discussed.  Your Reviewer should also have a list of items to discuss.
