Clinical trials

MIPS membership includes cover for clinical trials provided you meet certain criteria. Clinical trials and research projects being carried out in the public sector should be indemnified by the public sector institution (eg hospital, university) and you should confirm with them that appropriate indemnity is in place for your participation.

  • Have an appropriate MIPS membership classification for the healthcare activities undertaken
  • Have obtained ethics approval from a currently registered Human Research Ethics Committee with National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) eg Bellberry
  • Only treat patients located within Australia.

You ONLY need to apply for cover if you do not meet the above criteria, please complete a clinical trial application for individual assessment and approval.
