2017 Mandatory In-Service Education Program

University of Rochester employees who have job responsibilities in the Strong Memorial Hospital, Highland Hospital, or throughout our medical facilities are required to complete the Mandatory In-Service Education Program. The majority of employees will complete this course online. This course contains nine self-study modules to help ensure our employees are meeting obligations regarding internal policies and procedures, as well as Joint Commission and OSHA standards.

This course is pushed out to employees who are expected to complete it. If the course has been assigned to you, you would have received an email alerting you to its presence. You can verify your enrollment by logging in to MyPath with your NetID username and password and checking to see if it is listed under your Learning Transcript on your Main Page.
