Update Your Profile

The Department of Medicine faculty profile pages, available from the Faculty directory, are designed to describe your background, research interests and publication activity to colleagues, peers and the public. Profiles also provide contact information and a professional photograph.

Profiles are automatically created from information pulled from various Duke University databases, including the dFac system (official source of faculty data) and the Scholars@Duke directory of research profiles and scholarly activities. (Profile pages for faculty who provide care to patients are also featured at DukeHealth.org.)

Faculty and trainees in the Department of Medicine are encouraged to check your profile to confirm the basic information, and to provide short descriptions of your clinical and research activities. You can update your profile whenever you wish.

See the Profile Checklist

The tips on this page cover:

  • How to update and upload a new photo
  • How to update your research overview using Scholars.
  • How to update your list of publications using Duke Elements.
  • How to update your clinical profile on DukeHealth.org.
  • The Profile Checklist at bottom of this page for a handy reference to updating your online profiles.

Scholars@Duke


Scholars@Duke is the official Duke University system for presenting the academic scholarship of our faculty and trainees.

This initiative is valuable because it is Duke's public display of our academic profiles and a remarkable means for others, both within and outside of Duke, to connect in a era where collaboration matters.

To update your own profile

Follow these steps to edit and update your Scholars@Duke profile:

  • Visit http://scholars.duke.edu.
  • Search “People” for your name, and click on your profile.
  • Click “Manage This Profile” to make edits.
  • Note that you may designate someone else to manage and update your Scholars@Duke profile.

We recommend:

  • In the Overview section, write a description of your academic activities.
  • Upload a recent photo (within the past three years). See below for assistance in getting a new photo made.
  • Review your list of publications. Click over to the Elements system to approve new publications and make changes to your existing list. Elements also provides interesting analytics of your academic publications such as mentions on Twitter, readers on Mendeley or CiteULike, journal rankings and your paper’s citations, and a way to export your list by PDF including DOI links.

Get additional tips on updating your Scholars@Duke profile on this support page, where there are howto articles and video tutorials.

Update your photo


Faculty profile pages look best when you have a recent, professionally produced profile photograph.

Is your photo missing or more than 5 years old? If so, please update your photo at your earliest convenience.

If you have a recent studio photo, please send it to Elizabeth McCamic.

If you do not have a recent studio photo, do the following:

  • If you provide care to patients, Duke Health Marketing and Communications will pay for your photo. Contact Jennifer Schwabel schwabel.ja@gmail.com to request a photo, and at the same time, plan to record a video message for your dukehealth.org profile. The video message can give patients a better understanding of your personality and treatment philosophy.
  • If you are a full-time researcher in the Department of Medicine, please contact Elizabeth McCamic for information on the next photo opportunity.
