Health Insurance

UAB requires all international visiting medical students to have UAB-approved medical health insurance. You may purchase UAB Student Health Insurance or provide your own. Non-UAB health insurance must be approved by UAB Student Health before arrival. If not approved, you will need to purchase UAB’s Health Insurance coverage before starting your course.

Malpractice Insurance

Every international visiting medical student is automatically covered for mal-practice insurance of $3 million per aggregate year and $1 million per instance. This coverage is provided through UAB Professional Liability Trust Fund at no charge while you are enrolled in our program.
