The annual training modules have been assigned to you and are available via Guthrie Learn. They are due to be completed no later than October 31. This year, the annual training modules are 15 minutes less in length and yet remain compliant with all regulatory requirements. In an effort for managers to be prepared for the annual training, we’ve provided a document that provides a simple step-by-step approach on how to review direct reports, change reporting relationships in Peoplesoft, and leverage team monitor in Guthrie Learn to view status of completions.

Guthrie has started a gradual reopening plan for students. First priority has been given to students who had clinical rotations at Guthrie approved and that required these hours to graduate.
On a program by program basis, requests will be reviewed, and determinations made to facilitate the resumption of clinical rotations. No additional student clinical rotations will be approved prior to August 1, 2020. Medical students will resume clinical rotations at Guthrie starting on this date.
On July 8, the new Guthrie website launched with new tools to help patients navigate all that Guthrie has to offer. The Services and Treatments module lets patients search by common conditions. A patient may not know who to talk to about knee pain, but if they enter it in the search field, they can find what Guthrie has to offer. Try the new feature at www.guthrie.org/services-treatments.
