University Student Handbook

Professional Liability Coverage

Students are covered by the University’s malpractice insurance while enrolled as students in the clinic or pre-clinic curriculum of the University. Malpractice insurance only covers activities performed in connection with instruction or training in university classes, labs, and clinics while rendering professional services to a patient and under the supervision of a licensed faculty member. The activity must be within the course and scope of a student’s training for the malpractice coverage to apply.
