Hi everyone,

I need to purchase Medical Malpractice insurance for a 4 week elective in NY state. I am covered by my school for all other electives, just need it for 4 weeks in NY. Any advice, guidance, ideas of how much I should be prepared to pay?

Thanks,
J

Good luck trying to buy it independently. (If you find a place that will sell to you independently, let us know.)

As your school is not covering, see if you can get it through the place you are visiting.

Miklos is correct. This is a frequently asked question here and as long as I can remember, no one has been able to find inexpensive medical malpractice insurance to purchase.

See if the school you are rotating at will offer it to you; otherwise you might try someplace else. Many places will offer it at a small fee to you.
