Bloodborne Pathogens Training
The California OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard requires that all individuals with occupational exposure to blood, blood products, or other potentially infectious materials complete a Bloodborne Pathogens training course ANNUALLY. This requirement applies to all MSPA Studies program students. Stanford University Bloodborne Pathogens Training is a Web-based training that takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. The Office PA Education sends e-mail instructions to all MSPA Studies program students annually.
Pre-clerkship students will not receive credit for POM until they have completed this training (both years). Clinical students are not able to enter the Clerkship until they have completed this training.
The training module is self-paced and is accessible through STARS. Log into Axess and click on the STARS tab. In the Search Catalog box, enter the course title "Bloodborne Pathogens" or the course code EHS-PROG-1600.
