Question AAMC ID Privacy!

Hello I need help,
So I was at my attending's office and this girl told me she would hand it to him since he was busy. So I gave it to her and left, like an idiot!
Obviously my name and my aamc ID number was on it.
Can she use my information for anything? Im freaking out!
I REALLY NEED to keep my guard up huh! people are crazy, and sneaky.

Disclosure of name and AAMC ID no is not considered privacy violation.

I don't see why you are concerned.
