With Individual Faculty and Staff Initiatives Use of Name When Acting in a Johns Hopkins Capacity

You MAY use the Johns Hopkins Medicine name:

In activities that clearly support and advance the institution's research, education and patient care missions.

When use of the name is permitted but ambiguity or confusion about endorsement may still exist, Johns Hopkins requires explicit and prominent disclaimers saying that it does not endorse or approve the services or products of organizations and companies or those unrelated to the institution's activities.

You may NOT use, or authorize use of, the Johns Hopkins Medicine name in what might reasonably be viewed as endorsement or approval of a commercial product.

Johns Hopkins Medicine actively protects its name and marks from improper or misleading use by individuals or organizations not associated with the institution and will assure that use of the name and marks by faculty, physicians, students, alumni, staff, Johns Hopkins programs and others is appropriate.
