Intellectual Property Rights and Scenarios

Activity organizers will provide clinical simulation scenarios to appropriate CLRC staff. CLRC staff must review, prior to utilization, all clinical simulation scenarios utilized in the CLRC for adherence to CLRC procedures and safety. CLRC staff will maintain the integrity and confidentiality of the clinical simulation scenarios.

The Texas A&M University Health Science Center is co-author and copyright co-owner of all teaching or course materials, including clinical simulation scenarios, conceived or developed by CLRC staff alone, or in collaboration with faculty members or others. If an author retains title to copyright in teaching or course materials that are not modified or adapted for use by CLRC staff, the Texas A&M University Health Science Center will retain a royalty-free right to use the materials for educational purposes. See excerpts from The Texas A&M University System policy 17.01 below.
