Graduating in 2013?

We’ve recently launched a new Final Year Student/Intern Category.

This is a 24 month policy under our Professional Indemnity Insurance policy. It provides final year students with seamless cover for the final six months as a medical student, during any pre intern placements and for the following 18 months after graduation – ensuring that you have the right level of cover during this important career transition.

If you are graduating in 2013 and you are a current student policyholder we will automatically roll you over to this new Final Year Student/Intern category – normally priced at $20, as a thank you for your continued Membership, we will move you onto this policy on a complimentary basis!

*Subject to Underwriting approval and the terms and conditions of the policy.
