UPMC welcomes students from participating schools for clinical rotations. Students must complete the required clearances and annual mandatory education prior to starting any clinical experience.
Student Experience Agreements
In order to complete a rotation at a UPMC site, your school must have a student experience agreement with UPMC.Most schools in the Pittsburgh area have an agreement with UPMC.
Please contact the Office of Advanced Practice Providers to verify that there is a student experience agreement in place between your school and UPMC.
The following items must be sent in their entirety to Kristen Corbett, student educational experience coordinator, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. **Please note that the deadline to submit Spring 2014 rotation requests is October 4, 2013.
**Also, please note that submission of paperwork does not guarantee placement.
All forms must be hand-signed; electronic signatures will not be accepted.
If a rotation is confirmed, you will receive information regarding a mandatory drug screening that will need to be completed prior to the start of your rotation.
Privacy and Security Awareness Training
Under requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), health care workers must complete training related to patient privacy and information security. UPMC employees fulfilled these requirements during the initial timeframe in 2003-2004. New hires receive this training during their UPMC orientation.
As of May 2010, all UPMC employees were required to retrain as part of the changes related to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).
Students, volunteers, vendors, consultants, or contractors are considered to be part of the UPMC workforce and should fulfill the training requirements.
<>To fulfill this requirement, please view the HIPAA Training documents and complete the three quizzes that are included below. Print and return each completed quiz to email@example.com
at the time of the rotation request.
