Malpractice Insurance Option


Proof of coverage must be in English.  Coverage must extend for your entire stay at Brown, in the amount of $1,000,000 per occurrence and $3,000,000 aggregate.  The Warren Alpert Medical School does not provide malpractice insurance for VIMS during their Brown clinical elective.  We strongly prefer that visiting students use a local company that provides malpractice coverage to international students is Medical Malpractice Joint Underwriters Association.  I have attached, copy of their application.  Please fill it out and email it to Kizzy Moraldo at

***Coverage provided by the Medical Defense Union is unacceptable. ***

*** Brown cannot accept certificates from MPS (Royal College of Surgeons, Ireland) which will not provide adequate documentation of coverage. Please obtain your malpractice insurance from MMJUA-RI. ***
