Annual HIPAA training and confidentiality statements for 2013 must be completed by Feb. 28 for all UF employees and volunteers, including faculty, residents, fellows and staff, full-time and part-time.

Failure to complete the requirements by Feb. 28, 2013, will result in disciplinary action.

HIPAA Training

Based on your role, please complete only one of the following training modules (not both; if you’re not sure, you’re better off with the Research module as it includes both):

  1. If you’re involved in human-subject research in any way, complete HIPAA & Privacy – Research: http://privacy.health.ufl.edu/training/ResearchPrivacy/online.shtml

  2. If you are not involved in research, complete HIPAA & Privacy General Awareness:
    http://privacy.health.ufl.edu/training/hipaaPrivacy/instructions.shtml

If you have already completed your HIPAA training since Dec. 1, 2012, through MyUFL, you are in compliance for this year – you do NOT need to repeat the training.
