Miscellaneous
12.) Changes to the School of Medicine Research Committee grants programs
The School of Medicine Research Committee (SOMRC) reviews grant applications submitted by UofL School of Medicine faculty to three different grant programs. Effective Oct. 1, the SOMRC has modified the grant award ceilings for the Basic, Bridge, and Collaborative Matching Grant programs. Basic Grants will be awarded up to $25,000, Bridge Grants up to $40,000 and Collaborative Matching grants up to $50,000, with $25,000 in matching funds.

13.) Changes to HIPAA regulations and training
There have been significant changes to health information privacy laws this year. As a “hybrid entity” with health care components affected by these new rules, UofL must ensure its workforce members are trained in these regulatory changes. If you have previously been assigned HIPAA training in Blackboard, you will soon be assigned an additional HIPAA module called “HITECH Final Rule” which covers changes under the new laws.

What can you do to increase the likelihood that a productive classroom discussion will occur in your classes? And, what should you do when your well-intentioned discussion plan spins out of control?
