If you are a UAHS employee, you may also wish to add UAHS to your work history or update your listing so it links to the UAHS company page. The process for this depends on whether you already have your current position listed on your LinkedIn profile.

If you do not have your position at UAHS listed, follow these steps to add it:

  • Log in to LinkedIn.
  • Navigate to your profile by clicking "Profile" in the main menu.
  • Scroll down to the "Experience" section and click "Add Position."
  • Begin typing University of Arizona Health Sciences into the "Company Name" field.
  • When the drop-down menu of suggestions appears, select UAHS.
  • The field will auto-complete with the full name.
  • Fill in the "Position" and "Time Period" fields and any other information you wish to include about your position.
  • Click "Save."
  • Your position will appear in your profile, with the UAHS logo on the right-hand side. When connections (and others) visit your profile, both the logo and the company name will link back to the UAHS company page.

If you already have your position at UAHS listed in your profile, follow these steps to edit it so it links to the UAHS company page:

  • Log in to LinkedIn.
  • Navigate to your profile by clicking "Profile" in the main menu.
  • Scroll down to your UAHS position in the "Experience" section. Hover over the company name, and a pencil will appear. Click the pencil to edit.
  • Click "Change Company Name."

  • Your position will appear in your profile, with the UAHS logo on the right-hand side. When connections (and others) visit your profile, both the logo and the company name will link back to the UAHS company page.

If you wish to edit how the company name is displayed (for example, to indicate the specific center or office where you work) but maintain the link to the UAHS page, follow these steps:

  • Log in to LinkedIn.
  • Navigate to your profile by clicking "Profile" in the main menu.
  • Scroll down to your UAHS position in the "Experience" section. Hover over the company name, and a pencil will appear. Click the pencil to edit.
