Instructions for accessing the UAB Faculty and Staff
Learning Management System (LMS), formerly Health Stream,
to complete the required UAB/UABHS Privacy and Security Training


Before any training module or requirement can be accessed via the LMS, the student must be entered into Banner.  Once that is completed, a new student must create a BlazerID and password.  If the student already has a BlazerID and password, but is newly associated with a HIPAA covered entity, time will be required for the HIPAA training to appear in his/her assignment list.  The process from entering into Banner to creating BlazerID and password to having the required UAB/UABHS HIPAA Privacy and Security Training appear in ‘Assigned Learning’ within the LMS could be up to 48 hours.

Once the above issues are fulfilled, follow these steps to access the required HIPAA training:

  • Go to the link: www.uab.edu/learningsystem (Internet Explorer is the preferred browser)
