Using WUPS to generate your CEP

WUPS v.3 is a profile system developed by the innovation team in the Pediatric Computing Facility. Initially designed to replace the aging CVitae application, it offers a modular, open architecture to give it flexibility and expandability to meet disparate needs. It is an evolving tool to assist you in generating a CEP in the department of pediatrics’ preferred format. You are not required to use it. Faculty who already have extensive CEPs that were begun long before WUPS may find it onerous to begin. For others it is recommended. For all, WUPS is required to generate your CV. Your faculty profile on the pediatric website is pulled from here as well.

To assist you in understanding where all the component of your CEP are placed in WUPS, a “map” has been developed. You can find the “map” here and also on the OFD webpage. Also, WUPS has a HELP component built into the system. For basic questions, first utilize your division administrative staff. Each division has identified a person to assist with CEPs and they have been trained to assist you. If you aren’t sure who is your division CEP expert, contact the OFD and we can advise. If you need further assistance with the mechanics of WUPS, Janet Braun in OFD is available to assist. Once your CEP is completed, the OFD is happy to review it prior to submission to the promotion committee.
