Compliance Training

UTMB and the School of Health Professions requires all students, whether full time, part time or distance students, to take mandatory compliance courses each year. You must complete the ‘Annual Student Required Training’ and ‘Teacher Learner Conduct’ within 30 days of enrollment and annually thereafter within 60 days of the start of the semester.

Failure to complete the training modules by the required due date will result in a HOLD on your student record and/or disciplinary action. Holds are automatically removed via an overnight process after all required compliance training is completed. There is no need to contact anyone to have the hold removed.

Note: Students involved in Research or that have jobs within UTMB will have extra mandatory courses assigned and they must be completed by the due dates, as well.

Please visit the UTMB Office of Institutional Compliance for more information.

Mindfulness Be Here Now. Thrive helped me get through the end of the semester. The reminders to do small things to take care of myself and manage anxiety in the moment made all the difference.
