• Music / podcasts

    • The use of music and podcasts should not be necessary for medical education purposes.

      Commercial music: Commercial music is an area where copyright is upheld very strictly and seeking permission is complex.

      Radio: RCPE does not own an Educational Recording Agency (ERA) Licence and therefore you cannot legally make recordings or copies of radio programmes for educational use.

      Podcasts: Podcasts usually detail their licence information if available for download, although the use of podcasts should not be necessary for medical education purposes.


      If essential for your teaching material, Wikimedia Commons hosts sound clips under a number of open licences. Music can also be found from SoundCloud, Jamendo and ccMixter using Old CC Search. Please note the disclaimer on this website and be sure to check the content regarding permissions for reuse.
