Why Doctors in specialist training choose MDA National?

As a doctor-owned organisation, we understand the challenges you may face during your studies and career ahead. No matter how big or small your concern, we can support you with outstanding expertise, compassion and understanding.

 

Why do you need your own cover?

As a doctor working in a public hospital, you will usually have access to indemnity cover through your employer or the state government, however this indemnity may not provide the broad cover you need. Without your own indemnity cover, you could be liable to personally fund some medico-legal matters. It is important you have access to independent legal advice or a second opinion to protect your best interests.

 

Some of the issues we commonly assist with include:

  • medical college training disputes;
  • medico-legal advice, including ethical dilemmas, police statements, confidentiality and privacy queries;
  • Ahpra health complaints or investigations;
  • employment disputes;
  • bullying and harassment; and
  • coronial inquests.
