Insurance for students on work experience (including mandatory and extramural activities)

Medical students who are interested in broadening their clinical or research exposure by engaging in various work placements will be covered by the University of Sydney insurance policies provided:

  • these activities are a formal course requirement OR are sanctioned by the Associate Dean of the student’s Clinical School (acting on behalf of the Dean)
  • students are not employees or workers of the organisation they are placed with for the purposes of workers’ compensation legislation
