All students are required to purchase liability insurance coverage during each year of the pharmacy program through enrollment in the University of Texas System endorsed malpractice insurance plan. The plan year under this policy is September 1 through August 31, OR when the student completes the curriculum if prior to August 31 of the coverage year. Under the definition of malpractice, coverage includes: error, omission, or negligence in the performance of duties as an intern.
The college-endorsed student liability insurance policy DOES NOT cover students practicing as pharmacy technicians, serving as pharmacist-interns outside of the college’s program, or graduates continuing their internship status prior to licensure. An extension of this policy can be purchased directly from a liability insurance provider after college coverage has expired.
