Professional Liability Insurance

The liability coverage provides legal defense and protection against awards from claims reported or filed after the completion of residency if the alleged acts or omissions of the residents are within the scope of the education program. The coverage is consistent with the coverage provided to other medical/professional practitioners at Penn State Hershey Medical Center. The liability coverage is claims-made coverage and tail coverage is purchased by Penn State Hershey Medical Center for the resident following completion of the training program. Upon request residents will receive a copy of the Certificate of Insurance for each year they are in the training program.
