IS Overview

The Office of Information Services provides a variety of technical services to support the faculty and staff in the School of Medicine. We maintain the computer network infrastructure in 15 SOM buildings. Our security section ensures network safety by providing firewall, intrusion detection and remote VPN services. Server administrators provide network and e-mail accounts; anti-virus protection; and operating system patches to more than 4,000 customers. We are strategically installing wireless access points in SOM buildings so faculty will be able to connect to the SOM network wirelessly. Our technicians troubleshoot University-purchased desktop and laptop computers and coordinate service for the toner and printer/fax maintenance contract. The software development team operates a web content management system making it easy for departments to create and maintain their own sites. They develop web-enabled database applications and support administrative activities in the Dean’s Office.
