MacFACTS is changing!

In May 2023, MacFACTS will be replaced by the FHS DB - a new self management tool for faculty, staff, and department administrators in the Faculty of Health Sciences. Data already entered into MacFACTS will be transitioned over and accessible in the new database. In order to meet our launch at the beginning of May, we are closing MacFACTS on Friday, April 21st at 9:00 am to make this transition. MacFACTS will not be available for data entry or reporting at this time.  More information on using the new FHS DB and training is available on our new FHSDB Information website



Please see our new FHS DB site,, for training sessions and registration.
