Education and Training

The UCSF workforce, whether salaried or non-salaried, are required to complete HIPAA privacy and information security training. This includes faculty, staff, students, volunteers, as well as visitors who may have either direct or indirect access to patients or their health information.

There are several levels of training depending upon the level of access to patients and patient information which include basic and advanced training and can be viewed on-line or printed for training as follows:

Additional training and approval may be required for access to specific UCSF clinical systems, such as APeX. Contact the system owners and department managers for any additional requirements. Documentation of individuals completing the HIPAA training will be the responsibility of the unit providing the training. Each unit sponsoring training will be expected to report which groups were trained and when.

Please note that research investigators may also have additional requirements by the UCSF Committee for Human Research (CHR) from the Human Research Protection Program.
