Why do students need professional medical indemnity insurance?
As a healthcare student, you may require medical indemnity insurance to cover you in case a complaint, claim, investigation, or legal action is made against you while providing healthcare.
Healthcare practitioners are required by Australian law to have Civil Liability insurance to provide cover for acts, errors or omissions that might be made.
Based on criteria set out in the Member Handbook, MIPS membership provides indemnity cover for healthcare students doing clinical placements and healthcare activities such as:
- exchange programs.
This includes students undertaking tasks such as:
- taking a history or performing the physical examination of a patient
- writing a patient management plan
- administration and principles in admitting and discharging patients
- ordering and interpreting investigations
- communicating with patients, relatives and staff.
Students and international students benefit from free MIPS Membership. It should take less than two minutes to complete the form – so apply now.
