Student Professional Liability (SPL) is an insurance policy that may provide liability coverage for students in a professional healthcare related internship/practicum. Not all internships and/or practicums qualify for SPL insurance.
Certain types of authorized healthcare related internships and sites require students to have a SPL insurance policy. Professional internships/programs that typically meet the policy requirements are: Psychology, Registered Dieticians, Music Therapy, Occupational Therapy internships. Departments are charged a fee for students to be added to the SPL insurance policy.
Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) has developed a Student Professional LIABILITY Questionnaire for students and their advisors to help determine if a student internship/practicum may qualify for the SPL insurance policy.
If you have a question whether your internship meets the SPL policy requirements, please contact Joyce Pratt in the Department of Risk Management and Insurance (RMI).Please contact RMI for questions regarding SPL , or need any more information.
