The Surgical Neurology Branch at the National Institutes of Health needs a new, professional website. Prospective applicants MUST be registered with SAM (https://www.sam.gov/portal/SAM/##11) and be comfortable making sites that pass 508 Compliance (http://www.508checker.com/what-is-508-compliance).
This website needs to cover our Residency program, Clinical Service and Research Programs. Ideally, this will be a completely polished, plug and play site that we can then update with new information as needed (add new faculty members, change current residents, update information on recent graduates). For an experienced developer, this should be a relatively easy project, but it needs to be adaptive, reliable, clean, easy to navigate and Section 508 compliant. A successful applicant will need to be able to show similar current mobile-friendly websites they have created for other academic or medical institutions.
Some similar websites that fulfill our desired purpose are below.
Our goal is the creation of a website that would be our main landing site. This would have some rotating pictures of us and a welcome message with a picture of the Chief of our branch. I think there should be three very prominent tabs labeled:
Patient Care | Education | Research
Under Patient Care should be pages describing the various things we focus on, with pages for each of our major focuses:
Skull Base Tumors
Each one of those would have a tab with some pictures, the surgeons that do those surgeries (which would link to their faculty profile), the relevant protocols and links to other relevant branches (Brain tumors might have both NOB and ROB, for example).
I have attached a rough draft of what our Residency program website should look like.
Research would also be split by major research efforts/Faculty members. The Functional and Restorative Neurosurgery Unit would have one that just led to the existing website.
Other elements which would need to be incorporated somehow into the basic menu would include:
Faculty and Staff
Each faculty member (and staff member) would also have a page with a picture and basically their CV with a nice narrative blurb.
On all of our associated pages, I would have either a banner or a bottom strip or some type of easy to access menu that includes:
Enroll in a study | Make an appointment | Learn more about training opportunities or something of the sort that would take you to Research, Patient Care, Education.
We would like to get this project done as soon as possible, so please let us know if you are interested.
