College of Medicine Web Updates

Standard service levels

Most requests will be completed within a service-level agreement of 15 working days, dependent upon level of effort and scope. Requests should be submitted with this timeframe of three business weeks in mind. 


We understand there will be "emergency" updates requested, including those related to COVID-19, and we will do our best to get those in as quickly as possible.


If the request is a major change or requires substantial effort, it will be forwarded to Marketing and Communications leadership for prioritization and approval. Such requests may not be completed within 15 days. 


Some examples of changes

  • Routine requests: Edits to text content; new content to be added to existing pages; updates to existing forms (completed within 10 working days)
  • Emergency requests: Regulatory or compliance-related changes; staff changes due to termination; some COVID-19-related changes (completed within 2 business days)
  • Major functionality changes: New pages; new forms; large documents to be converted to web format; significant changes to images (timelines to be determined based on level of effort; requesters will generally be contacted within 4 to 6 weeks with details if this applies)
Your Info




What Needs To Be Updated

Continuing Education Update
Please only include changes made at one URL per request item. If you need changes made at more than one URL, use the "Add another update" link. If you're adding new programs to the list and updating others, please only include the updates in one request item and a separate item for each new program.

























If you're uploading a photo to be used, please give it to us at the highest possible quality in .jpg format. 

If you're making textual changes, it is best to provide those in the body of the form above. If you must attach a file, it needs to be a text document (.doc, .docx, .rtf, .txt), not PDF.

Please note that we cannot post PowerPoint presentations, PDFs or .doc files directly to the website because they are not accessible. The same is also true for complicated graphics, regardless of format.

Please provide a name, a brief understanding of who the person is (student, faculty, community member, etc.) as well as a way we can get in touch. Multiple points of contact are welcomed!

Events Calendar
Individual programs and departments may request access to add events to the central calendar. Feeds from this system appear on the Lions' Eyes around campus, on our various websites and in a unified calendar view at https://pennstatehealthnews.org/events. Upon account creation, you will receive an email with instructions on how to post events.

This is what is used to log in to the calendar. It is usually the person's initials and a two-, three- or four-digit number, such as abc123. If you want to request access for multiple people, please include all Access IDs, separated by a comma.

Note that, once approved, users can submit events on any topic; however, certain default instructions are provided depending on your program.
