American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC)'s HIPAA Frequently Asked Questions
Published in Association of American Medical Colleges
The HIPAA Privacy Rule has raised a number of issues concerning its impact on the training of residents and medical students. This document represents the AAMC’s understanding of answers to the questions that have been frequently brought to our attention. Ensuring that the Privacy Rule does not become an impediment to education requires institutional policies and training directed at residents and students. It also requires that all entities that train individuals have a common understanding of the Rule’s requirements. It is hoped that this document will help achieve these goals.
