distribution of sensitive data to those situations which require it, and to permit
distribution of non-sensitive, directory information wherever a useful purpose
can be served.
Directory information consists of lists of students attending each medical
school, lists of graduates of each medical school with year of graduation, and
lists of residents participating in each program of graduate medical education.
