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 Medical Malpractice Joint Underwriters Association (MMJUA), a local company that provides malpractice insurance coverage to international students. The link to their application is above.  Please fill it out and email it to Kizzy Moraldo at She will contact you 2- 3 weeks later with a quote.

Another option for Malpractice Insurance is through  Academic Medical Professionals Insurance Exchange RRG.

***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. ***
