The education and training of all employees is extremely important at UBMD, as they are probably the first and most important line of defense in a compliance program. Education is included as one of the seven essential elements of a compliance program as outlined by the Federal Sentencing Guidelines and Office of Inspector General guidelines. As such, they are an integral part of the UBMD Compliance Plan.
