As a program director or administrator, what are my responsibilities regarding the security of applicants’ information?

You should treat information about applicants as confidential at all times. Confidential information includes the names of applicants, applicant information and program ranking information.

Personal information of applicants disclosed to you by CaRMS should only be used for the purpose of selecting candidates.

Applicant information provided to you by CaRMS should be kept only as long as it is required for the reasons it was collected. You must have procedures in place to destroy, delete, erase or convert applicants’ personal information into an anonymous form after the completion of the match process.
