HIPAA Training

Individuals who use or have access to protected health information in the course of their human subject research are required by the University's mandate through the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 to obtain basic HIPAA awareness training. A copy of the certificate of completion may be included with an IRB application if applicable. All forms and completion certificates should be emailed to ORC_Research@Mercer.edu

The ORC does NOT use the Blackboard online course delivery system.
