Malpractice Insurance Information
The U's Health Care Professional Liability (Malpractice) insurance through the Utah State Division of Risk Management provides coverage for U students engaged in providing services to members of the public in the course of an approved medical, nursing, or other professional healthcare clinical training program. However, this insurance policy restricts coverage for activities outside the State of Utah. This restriction is significant because of the potential loss of the University's defenses, limitations, and protections under the Governmental Immunity Act of Utah. Therefore, to avoid being underinsured and to comply with insurance requirements imposed by training facilities, students must purchase commercial Malpractice insurance with minimum limits of $1,000,000 per occurrence and $3,000,000 annual aggregate for those students who are placed in clinical settings outside of Utah. This insurance with these industry standard liability limits must also cover U supervising faculty (if applicable) and the U of U as an institution.
