Malpractice Insurance Coverage Policy

Students are fully covered by Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine’s professional malpractice insurance while on all officially assigned hospital and healthcare center clerkships, preceptorships, and electives approved by the College.

First- and second-year students participating in clinical opportunities outside of the regular curriculum are covered by PCOM’s malpractice insurance provided the clinical opportunity has the approval of the Director of Clinical Education and/or Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs.
