Student Liability (Malpractice) Protection for Students

Professional Liability – The Trust

As a student, you know how important hands-on experience is for your career. But how much thought have you given to planning and protecting your future? The Trust knows you have a lot on your plate because we’ve been in your shoes! Having the right tools at your disposal is essential to starting off on the right foot.

Did you know that every time you provide psychological services, even in training, you put yourself at risk for a lawsuit and other legal, governmental, and regulatory actions? Being insured through someone else’s malpractice policy doesn’t guarantee that you’ll get the protection or attention you need in case of a complaint or allegation. Protect yourself and your future with Student Liability insurance for as little as $35 a year!

The Trust’s Student and Early Career Psychologist (SECP) Advisory Committee has taken the guesswork out of getting started with our new brochure “Starting a Private Practice: An Early Career Psychologist’s Guide.” This essential resource was developed to help you navigate the unique challenges early career professionals face when getting started and is a must-read for every student. Download your complimentary copy here.

Our Student Liability policy includes:

  • $1 million/$3 million limits
  • Disciplinary board defense
  • Premises medical payments
  • Loss of earnings
  • Property damage
  • Assault and/or battery

It’s coverage you simply can’t afford not to have. Plus, as a Trust Student Liability insurance policyholder, you get access to our complimentary Advocate 800 Program. This valuable service provides you with unlimited, free confidential consultations with Trust Advocates who are licensed psychologists with extensive legal, ethical, and risk management expertise.
