THE COMMITTEE ON HUMAN RESEARCH
HIPAA TRAINING FOR RESEARCH INVESTIGATORS
AND RESEARCH STAFF
HIPAA Research Training
There is currently one research module available. Investigators, research staff, coordinators, and administrators who need to know the CHR procedures should take this module. A second UCSF training module will be added in the future.
|| Research Aspects of HIPAA Tutorial (UCSD)
|| This tutorial was developed by the UC San Diego Human Subjects
Protection Program and has been made available to the research
community at all the UC Medical Centers. It is targeted to
research investigators, though anyone interested may complete
this module. After you finish the tutorial, you will receive a completion certificate with your name on it.
NOTE: There are other non-research-related HIPAA training requirements for members of the UCSF workforce. Visit the UCSF HIPAA website for more information, and contact the Privacy Office with questions.
How do I access these modules if I am off site or a UCSF affiliate?
The research module is publicly
available. However, if you are attempting to access any of the HIPAA training modules
on the UCSF HIPAA website from a site outside of the UCSF system,
you may be denied access.
How is training tracked?
departments are required to track the HIPAA training for their
staff. The CHR does not track HIPAA training, though it does expect
researchers to complete one of the HIPAA and Research training
modules. You do not need to submit certificates of HIPAA training
to the CHR.
