Photo Consent Information

The first week of the program is a busy one. One of the things requested of you during that week is to have your photo taken. This photo will form part of your student file at the School of Medicine and will be used for identification purposes by administrative and student services offices, and by instructors to assist in memory recall in learning student names and when providing references for employment. It is to your advantage to have this photo taken, although it is your option to do so.

Queen’s University collects, maintains, uses, and discloses student personal information in accordance with the Ontario Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. The School of Medicine requests this photo (under the Royal Charter of 1841, as amended) for the use of the members of the School of Medicine exclusively.

Your photo will only be used in accordance with privacy legislation and will only be disclosed with your consent, in a compelling or compassionate situation, or where required by law. Storage, retention, and destruction of your personal information complies with existing legislation, and privacy protection protocols.

If you have any questions regarding this request to take your photo, please contact the Undergraduate office or Admission Office for the School of Medicine.
