KU Medical Center provides opportunities for shadowing so that future professionals have an opportunity to assess whether a healthcare or research career is a good fit. Through shadowing you will get a better sense of what is required for the job as well as what the environment and people might be like. Because the shadowing experience involves exposure to individual health information or contact with patients, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and other institutional requirements apply. The HIPAA Shadow Training contains a PowerPoint tutorial and a brief quiz. Once you have successfully completed the training, you will receive a certificate of completion. Please print the certificate and provide to your shadowing sponsor.
