The best way is to ask the medical school to which you are applying for.

HIPAA and OSHA training requirements varies from hospital to another.

Have some doubts concerning this.
Am a medical student from India.
Have some questions about it. Please answer:
1. What is HIPAA and OSHA training?
2. What is the significance of HIPAA and OSHA. Both for the IMg and the hospital I am applying for.
3. Can I avail of these from India. Or do I have to visit US separately for this.
4. What are the costs that these would take?
5. Who could I contact to avail of these.?

I know they are a lot of questions. But I am utterly disinformed about it. Would be very grateful if anybody could help. Thanks in advance.
