Malpractice insurance is a necessary component of a medical student’s curriculum. In the United States the majority of universities require that students have insurance when enrolling for classes. At Nexus Insurance Services, it is one of our goals to help students find affordable malpractice insurance for their specific program of study.
Even if you are a medical student with a supervisor who is responsible for your actions, you can still be held liable if an unexpected mistake happens to a patient. This is why medical student malpractice insurance is so important – especially for students who are still learning all the different aspects of health care.
Medical students can purchase malpractice insurance coverage for a short term period. For the majority of states, insurance is a requirement to qualify for the state board license exam, so students can buy coverage for one or two months to fulfill that requisite.
Also, some universities will not provide coverage for visiting students, so if an international student will be doing an internship in the U.S. for a few months, they can purchase a short-term policy.
Special Discounted Rates for Medical Students
Many malpractice insurance providers offer medical students discounted rates on coverage. You can also receive a discount if you are a recent graduate of medical school.
