On-Line Research Tutorials

Welcome to the UCI Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Research Tutorial website. This tutorial reviews core concepts and requirements for accessing, collecting, creating and/or providing Protected (Personal) Health Information (PHI) in the conduct of research involving human research participants.

Please read the following information carefully.

The HIPAA Research Tutorial is required when researchers will be listed on IRB protocols involving PHI.

All UCI employees (faculty, staff) and students (undergraduates, graduates, UNEX) must take the UC HIPAA Research tutorial for credit by using their UCINetID and password to log-in.

  Will you be taking this tutorial for credit?  

Yes, I will take the tutorial for credit.
No, I want to take the tutorial as a visitor.

  • If an outside institution has asked you to complete the UC HIPAA Research tutorial, you should take the tutorial as a visitor. Upon completion of the tutorial, a congratulations message will appear indicating that you have completed the tutorial as a visitor. You should print this for verification of tutorial completion if it is required by your institution. UCI researchers are now required to complete a CITI course to satisfy the Human Research Protections education requirement.
