KUMC Training Policy
To recognize KUMC’s obligation to provide training on applicable federal, state and accreditation requirements and University policy, and the requirement of employees, students, volunteers and affiliates to participate in such training.
KUMC employees, students, volunteers and affiliates
KUMC is committed to meeting the applicable regulatory, accreditation and University requirements for training of employees, students, volunteers and affiliates. KUMC also recognizes that providing training enhances job performance, increases safety, and improves best practices.
All employees and students will be required to participate in certain educational or training programs upon employment with or admission to the University, and periodically thereafter. Volunteers and affiliates may also be required to participate in educational and training programs, commensurate with their role. Certain role-based training shall be required on topics such as IT security, human research protection, animal welfare, Responsible Conduct of Research, Good Clinical Practice, hazardous materials, radiation safety, export control, blood borne pathogens, Title IX and sexual harassment, conflict of interest, or other role-specific topics.
All required training must be completed within the time frames approved by KUMC. A list of required training and applicable time frames is set forth below. This list does not include training required by individual Schools or academic departments.
Supervisors are expected to inform their employees of all required training and allow for employees to participate in such training during their scheduled work day. In limited circumstances, outside training may be substituted to meet the applicable training requirements. Such approval shall be granted by the office responsible for oversight of the particular training.
KUMC also recognizes the value of professional development opportunities. Professional development and training enhances the skills, knowledge, and professionalism of employees to better enable them to contribute effectively and meaningfully to the University’s mission. Departments and supervisors are encouraged to make internal, and, when possible, external, professional development opportunities available to all employees.
Violations of this policy may lead to:
- Restrictions on an individual’s ability to engage in certain job duties or responsibilities;
- Restrictions on an individual’s ability to propose or conduct research;
- Restrictions on enrollment or completion of certain academic activities or programs;
- Disciplinary action as specified under applicable University or campus policies and procedures.
