The Medic's Guide Book

Insurance and Indemnity

There are two forms of cover you require when working overseas. 

Firstly you need Travel Insurance to cover your own health, your belongs, flights etc. Medics Travel recommends the cover provided through Weslyan Medical Sickness as it covers you for needlestick injuries and for failing exams! You also get a 5% discount if you book through Medics Travel. Click on the picture to the left for more information - make sure you select Medics Travel to get the discount!

Secondly you need Indemnity Cover while working overseas. This covers you for any mishaps that may affect patients you treat. You're probably a member of an organisation already (such as the Medical Protection Society). Contact them for more information and to make sure they cover you in your destination.
