The School of Medicine and Public Health will relaunch the school's flagship web property, med.wisc.edu, in the summer of 2023. This important work will ensure the site effectively supports SMPH’s strategic goals, align content with target audiences, ensure accessibility, improve user experience and optimize content maintenance.Read more
Planning for the project began in February 2022. Driven in part by preparation for the LCME accreditation self-study, the goal for completing the project is summer of 2023. Other driving factors include improving digital accessibility, aligning content with key audiences and strategic objectives, and moving the site into a CMS that facilitates dynamic content and is more broadly supported.
Department, center and institute websites, which are separate web properties maintained directly by thee units, will not be affected. The relaunch will only impact content currently housed within the root domain, med.wisc.edu. Subdomains (e.g., xxxxx.med.wisc.edu), including the SMPH intranet, are also outside the scope of the project.
Who is working on the project?
The Office of Strategic Communications in the SMPH Dean's Office will partner with a university-approved web vendor and brand strategy firm during the project. Leadership and content experts will be engaged throughout the design process. Comments, concerns or questions are welcome at any time and may be submitted using the form below.
