Student Liability

You have enough to concentrate on in school—your clinical experiences should be an exciting time filled with new challenges. Whether you are in an externship, preceptorship, working part-time or as a volunteer, the PLIT provides professional liability protection for students that have a sponsoring veterinarian. For only $10, you can secure the same amount of coverage as purchased by your sponsoring veterinarian*. And, the AVMA PLIT will pay for subsequent student applications during the same calendar year after the $10 fee has been paid. An application needs to be completed and eligibility requirements met prior to each clinical experience.
