Internship Professional Liability Insurance

Students are strongly encouraged to obtain professional liability insurance prior to beginning their internship. As a student, you may be asked to lead, engage in, and/or conduct activities that have associated risk. Although you may be covered under the internship agency’s liability policy, an additional layer of protection is recommended. Additionally, some agencies will require that students obtain liability insurance prior to their start date. Students may elect to apply for professional liability insurance through one of the following programs or any other program acceptable to the student and internship agency.

Note: The following insurance plans are not endorsed, in anyway, by the Department of RPTM at Penn State University. Students should check with their prospective agency prior to purchasing insurance coverage to ensure that the student policy meets the agency’s insurance coverage requirements.
