What information should I make available to applicants during the interview process?

Section 4.4 of the Match Participation Agreement for Applicants and Programs requires each program to act in good faith to provide complete, timely, and accurate information to interviewees, including a copy of the contract the applicant will be expected to sign if matched to the program and the institution’s policies on visa status and eligibility for appointment.  The information must be communicated to interviewees prior to the Rank Order List Deadline, and a signed acknowledgment should be obtained from each interviewee. Recognizing that many appointment contracts are lengthy and that others may not contain all of the institution’s relevant policies, an acceptable alternative is to post the contract and policies on the institution’s website and notify interviewees where the information may be found.  The signed acknowledgment should include a statement that the interviewee was notified where to find the information on the institution’s website.
