LEVEL 1 Training: HIPAA for Visitors and Vendors


This module is intended primarily for official visitors and vendors who will be entering patient care areas in UF's Academic Health Center, but do not have a department association to allow them to use MyUFL.


This tutorial appears as a pop-up box. If you click below on Begin Training and get sent back to this page, you need to either disable your pop-up blocker or use a different computer that allows pop-ups from this page. Speak to your computer support person for help.

The tutorial takes approximately 15 minutes and must be completed in one sitting. Please do not close the tutorial window until you see the Certificate of Completion, which appears at the end of the training. Read the information on each slide. Press the NEXT button to proceed from slide to slide.

Registration is at the end: You do not need a UFID number to register, but, if you have one, please use it. All others may make up a pseudo-number to register the completion of your training. The registration screen comes at the end of the tutorial and before the Certificate of Completion.
If you do NOT have a UF ID#, use ####-0000. Replace the first 4 digits with some other set of numbers that you will remember, such as part of a phone #,address, or zip code. Do not use all zero's.
If you have a UF ID# but can't remember it, please go to: http://www.it.ufl.edu/ufid/wmufid.html.
It is very important to use your UFID # if you have one, and to enter your number accurately.

Certificates: If you complete the tutorial and the registration page, but do not see your Certificate or receive an error message, your completion has not registered. Use your Back arrow to try the registration again. If all attempts fail, please contact the Privacy Office - information is below.

Browsers: The module works best with an Internet Explorer Browser, but will also work with Netscape 6+, Firefox, and other common browsers. It is also designed to work with MacIntosh systems.

Thank you for your participation. Please contact the department where you will be visiting in UF, if you have any questions.

If you have questions but are not associated with UF, please call the person/agency for whom you are completing this training.
