Professional Liability Insurance

Creighton students are covered under a group professional liability insurance policy issued to Creighton University, but only for legal liability arising out of the performance of, or failure to perform, duties while acting within the scope of their duties as students. Therefore, students in the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions are encouraged to obtain their own professional liability insurance policy (sometimes referred to as malpractice insurance) to provide coverage for them if they plan to work part-time in a health care field while completing their professional program of study. Some student organizations within the School, such as CUSOTA, ASP, NCPA, or CUSAPTA, may have information on how to obtain this insurance coverage at reasonable rates.
