During both your pre-clinical and clinical years of medical study, you need student indemnity insurance cover. As a student, your university may not cover you for every medico-legal eventuality.
Avant's free Student Indemnity Insurance Policy will cover you against a number of risks that could detrimentally affect your future career in medicine.
Having Avant's membership and student indemnity insurance package means we can help you prepare for any unexpected events, which allows you to focus on your studies.
Why do you need professional indemnity insurance cover?
When you're learning, you need all the protection, support and guidance you can get. Being covered for liability during your career in medicine is critical as things can occasionally go wrong.
- Your university may not cover you for everything
- In medicine, your reputation is critical to a successful career and you want to minimise your risk as much as possible
- Accidents can happen while you are doing an elective or aiding a person in an emergency (Good Samaritan Act). Having your own professional indemnity insurance policy is important in medicine, where the decisions you make can have profound implications.
