A note about SOS Workshops

The Support for Office Staff (SOS) workshop series is not a certified skills program, such as is offered by The University of Arizona through its professional development courses in information technology and the IT Academy for Microsoft® Products as part of its software licensing benefits (see Related Resources below). The SOS workshop series is aimed at assisting education support staff as well as clerkship and elective/selective coordinators in further developing skills in using office applications, such as Microsoft® Office  Word, Excel, Project, Visio, and PowerPoint and Adobe Pro, in ways targeted to support the medical education program. Some workshops may offer opportunities to learn new software.The primary facilitator for these workshops will be Karen Spear Ellinwood, PhD, JD, Director, Faculty instructional development. AHSC BioCommunications staff may provide additional assistance or source materials.
