A new submission to the CU Shared Practices (CUSP) website addresses the universal challenge of furthering staff training and development.
Last year, a School of Medicine (SOM) team at the Anschutz Medical Campus resolved to address administrative knowledge deficits by creating a monthly training program: the SOM Administrative Professional Development Toolbox. To learn more about their goal (“Do it right the first time, don’t ask for forgiveness later”) and how the program is succeeding, check out the CUSP website at www.cu.edu/controller/initiatives/cusp/?cat=6. (And yes — there is still time for you to submit your own department’s innovations to CUSP! The deadline for 2013 is April 30.)
