Participate in the AAMC Staff Success Engagement Survey on February 3

The UNM School of Medicine, along with other medical schools around the country, is participating in the Association of American Medical Colleges Staff Success Engagement Survey to better understand staff engagement in an effort to improve the workplace.

All part-time and full-time staff will receive an individualized invitation to take the online survey. It will take about 20 minutes, and it can be completed in more than one sitting. Your participation is completely voluntary and you may withdraw at any time.

The survey is confidential; the School of Medicine will only receive aggregate data reports. Survey results will be shared with the medical school community and used to create specific action plans to improve programs and policies within our institution.

Help us learn how to make our school a better place to work - look for your survey invitation in your email inbox on Feb. 3, 2015!
