Educational Documents

Medical and biomedical education is the foundation of academic medicine. IEE felt it was important to explicitly state and codify our institution's educational principles. It is our hope that the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Foundational Principles for Teaching and Educationdefined here will be inspiring to Johns Hopkins leaders, educators and learners, to help align all teaching and educational efforts.

The Johns Hopkins University Intellectual Property Policy clarifies ownership of intellectual property (IP) created by faculty, staff and students of the University.  In most cases, the University asserts its ownership rights to IP created by those working on behalf of the University.  An exception is made for some “literary or scholarly works”, for which the University relinquishes ownership to the individual creator(s).  This policy is meant to provide clarification on the ownership and use of educational materials by Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (“JHUSOM”) faculty, staff and students working on behalf of JHUSOM (hereinafter referred to as “faculty”).  JHUSOM does not consider educational materials to be traditional literary or scholarly works, and it is important that ownership of these materials be clearly understood in order to operate effective academic programs.  Educational materials include online course materials, lecture materials, educational web sites, videos, and manuals (this is not intended to be an exhaustive list).  Literary and scholarly works would include books, monographs, articles and similar work.  This policy is not meant to change ownership rights for literary and scholarly works, as defined in the JHU IP Policy.
