Indemnity for student placements and electives
While you’re a student, your MIPS membership gives you indemnity insurance and support in the event of a complaint, investigation, or legal action as a result of your involvement in healthcare you provide as a student.
The MIPS Membership Student category provides cover for student healthcare placements (including electives) where the placement is undertaken with the approval of and as a requirement for, a university at which you are studying to obtain a qualification that will lead to registration as a health practitioner.
If you attend an education provider in Australia, cover is extended to student healthcare placements outside of Australia (excluding the USA and where USA laws apply).
If you are unsure if your student healthcare activities are covered, visit mips.com.au/placement.
