Medical defence organisations: malpractice cover for students

We strongly recommend that all students consider indemnity cover and income protection for their time as medical students through to foundation training.

This is not mandatory, but it is highly advisable, as the University does not cover you for malpractice.

The Medical Defence Union (MDU) and Medical Protection Society (MPS) both provide indemnity cover, and Wesleyan Sickness offers an income protection package.

Membership of these organisations is free for medical students.

You will also be able to meet representatives from some of these organisations and sign up, as they will attend events such as the Direct Entry Induction and the Year 3 Induction at the University.
