School Website Launch: Phase One
Tuesday, June 9, 2015
We are excited to announce the launch of the new Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) website. This project, which features new site design, architecture and technology, will be rolled out in multiple phases over the coming months. The first phase includes the site homepage and top-level landing pages for About the School, Education, Research, Patient Care, and the Dean’s Office. It also includes a new School-wide events calendar module, which will allow seamless coordination, self-service, and sharing of events within the School. Subsequent website sections that have been prioritized by School leadership and a committee working with the Digital and Social Media team will go live in successive phases.
As a world-class institution, ISMMS calls for a website that is equally extraordinary. We embarked on this transformational project to create a vastly improved user experience, where resources and information are easily accessible, intuitively organized, and visually and editorially compelling. To guide the project, we gathered extensive feedback and input from designated faculty and staff reviewers. This is our opportunity to ensure that the School’s accomplishments and expertise are fully represented, that our mission is clear, and that we are fully serving and engaging our prospective student, faculty, and research audiences, including the tens of thousands of visitors to our website each month. The new site, which features intuitive and dynamic components, is optimized for mobile devices and social media sharing, and will include flexible customization and enhanced self-service options, as well, making it far easier to maintain and update.
While this launch marks a major milestone for our branding efforts, as well as a benchmark for the transformation of our digital and social media footprint that has been underway over the past few years, the new School website will be the first of many Health System-wide digital projects.
The next phases of the new School site to be unveiled in future launches will include: Medical Education and Graduate Education; CME and Postdoctoral Affairs; Medicine and Oncological Sciences; followed by research institutes, centers and departments.
We wish to thank all of the participating faculty, students, and researchers for their invaluable feedback and support. We will continue to update you as the site progresses.
