This insurance affords professional liability coverage for persons in healthcare professional fields, including students, such as:
- Athletic Trainers
- Student Interns
- Social Work
This coverage is to protect the University from liability associated with alleged wrongful practices that result in bodily injury, medical expenses, property damage, and can include the cost of defending lawsuits related to these type of claims. All new medical programs must be reported to Risk Management prior to the start of operations so the program can be reported to the insurance carrier.
As this is a claims-made coverage, it is imperative that any notification of a claim is sent to both the Office of General Counsel as well as Risk Management immediately upon discovery.
