New Calendar Is a Better Way to Find Events

The new calendar displays events in an easy-to-scan format. Clicking an event name shows more information.

Keeping track of medical staff events at Cedars-Sinai just got easier.

A new medical staff calendar is available on the Cedars-Sinai website. It contains all the events that traditionally have appeared in the Meetings and Events section of Medical Staff Pulse, but the new calendar is easier to digest and contains useful new features.

A link to the new calendar is available on the left side of the "For Medical Professionals" page on the Cedars-Sinai website.

A link to the new calendar is available on the left side of the "For Medical Professionals" page on the website.

Among the calendar’s features:

  • Events are listed in an easy-to-scan format, with columns showing the date, time, event name and location. Clicking on the event name, or hovering your cursor over it, will give you more information.
  • You can add an event to your Microsoft Outlook calendar or another personal calendar. Check the box next to the event you want to add, click "Add To My Calendar" at the top of the events list, then follow the prompts. You also can have reminders sent to you via email or text message.
  • Hovering your cursor over a date on the monthly calendar on the right side of the page brings up a list of events happening that day.
  • Each event comes with a map link, useful for finding off-campus addresses.

If you have an event you'd like to include in the calendar, click the red "Submit an Event" box on the right side of the page, add your information and click "Next." Once you've confirmed the information and clicked "Submit," we'll review your event within two business days.

If we need more information, we'll let you know. New events will be posted as they're approved throughout the week.

You still can submit event information via the "Share Your News" link on the home page of Pulse. But using the new submission form will streamline the process.

Pulse will continue to feature several events each week under "Mark Your Calendar" on the newsletter's home page and will link to the calendar on the website. After this issue, Pulse no longer will publish its own calendar.

Listings in the medical staff calendar also are available as part of the internal Cedars-Sinai calendar on the Intranet.
