Faculty Collaboration Database
The Faculty Collaboration Database now supports Faculty Designee accounts. Faculty Designees, such as Administrative Assistants, may create accounts which will allow them to manage multiple faculty CVs and Profiles. Simply follow the three steps to access the FCD as a Faculty Designee. A short video is also available that demonstrates the steps.
Faculty Designees must use the online form to request an account.
Within 1-3 business days, designees will receive an email explaining how to confirm their account.
Once confirmed, faculty MUST log into the FCD and select a Faculty Designee.
Please complete the FCD Help Form with additional questions.
The Faculty Collaboration Database (FCD) was developed to foster collaboration between faculty members of the Medical College of Wisconsin and to support and enhance the research advances, patient care needs, educational excellence and business requirements of the College. The FCD was initiated by the Faculty Career Development committee, the CTSI (Clinical and Translational Science Institute) and the Office of Research and developed by the staff of the MCW Bioinformatics program. Ongoing support including education, Help Desk and other assistance is provided by MCW Libraries.
Basic demographic information as well as grants faculty are involved with are automatically added to faculty profiles. Other information such as published articles, leadership positions, mentoring availability, educational expertise, clinical expertise, community partnerships and more are parts of your profile that you add to the FCD. Faculty may also upload their Curriculum Vitae.
MCW Libraries is offering the following educational opportunities to assist you in getting your profile set-up in the FCD:
Presentations at Department Meetings: Librarians are available to present a 30-minute overview of the FCD with time for questions. Please contact FCD Help Desk for scheduling.
One-on-One Consultations: Librarians are available to meet with you individually in your office or department at a time that is convenient for you. Please contact us to schedule a meeting.
Online Assistance: The FCD web site contains an informative “About” page as well as screen casts that illustrate how to login and update your profile. You may wish to just get started and contact the library if you have questions along the way. The FCD link is: http://fcd.mcw.edu
