HIPAA Privacy and Security Training

Faculty, staff and students are required to complete online security training regularly. Failure to complete training by your deadline can result in suspension of access to information systems including CUIMC email. If you miss your deadline you must still complete training before your access is restored.

The Office of HIPAA Compliance's Training page has details about the training including assignment criteria, notification, and links to the online course, as well as contact information if you believe you are required to complete HIPAA training but no course has been assigned to you.
