Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to take HIPAA training?

Training in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is required for all WCMC employees, regardless of whether your work is patient-related. When you begin your employment at WCMC, Human Resources will indicate how you can take HIPAA training in WTMS. This training must be completed within the first 45 days of your employment. Please note that all Weill Cornell employees, regardless of how long they have been working for the institution, may be asked to retake their HIPAA certification when updates are made to the policy. Your department will be notified if you are required to retake the certification.
