HIPAA Privacy and Information Security Training

The HIPAA Privacy Office and Washington University Information Security Office are responsible for training university workforce members in the applicable regulations for privacy and information security.

Awareness training for HIPAA Privacy and Information Security  is provided to all new employees, post-doctoral trainees, and students on at the School of Medicine during New Employee Orientation and New Student Orientation.

Workforce members at the Medical School are also required to complete HIPAA 101, a set of online training modules that cover the HIPAA Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rule.

Classroom and online refresher training is also available.  Refresher courses include topics such as:

  • Privacy Matters – Protecting Patient Privacy through Data Security
  • Encryption 101
  • Appropriate Use of Clinical Systems

We can also customize classroom refresher training to meet departmental needs.

To request a classroom refresher, contact the HIPAA Privacy Office and/or the Information Security Office.
