Liability Insurance

All students on clinicals, practicum, or internships must register each semester to be covered by Northeastern University’s liability insurance, for which students pay an annual fee. This insurance covers injury to third parties by students who are doing work or completing professional studies outside of Northeastern University's premises. These activities must clearly be part of the student's assigned duties. The liability insurance does not cover willful misconduct. Students or the clinical placement coordinator can request the Office of Risk Services to send evidence confirming coverage to their field site. Students should consult their clinical placement officer, program coordinator, and specialization policies for information about further requirements for liability insurance. If you are not sure if your program is covered under this policy, coverage can be verified through the Office of Risk Services.
