New - shadow training package
Prospective students sometimes request to "shadow" a KUMC professional. Since the shadowing experience involves exposure to health information or patient contact, the HIPAA Privacy Rule and other institutional requirements apply. Shadow training and the shadow document package requires no KUMC account. Faculty and administrators should remember to have the student print out a certificate upon completion and retain the certificate in the department. If the student has taken HIPAA training at another institution, ask for proof of satisfactory completion. Read more.
