I was having trouble with this. However some universitys offer malpractice insurance within thier elective so you only have to get health insurance. I found this was easier.
Hope this helps

you can ask them if they provide that in hospital or not. I mean for some hosital you can buy insurance after arrival.otherwise you can ask hospital to introduce some of these companies to you

I have found that there are only a few options if you have to find your own coverage. It is important to either find either occurence coverage or coverage that hs the "Tail" charge built into the premium. this assures that once you no longer need the coverage that is wraps itself up and you have this coverage for the life time of the exposure you create during this period. I tried a link that I found when I googled for coverage and they were very helpful. The coverage was expensive in my opinion but they did find an option. If I recall it was around $1500. Please post if you have found something else.

I would pick on choosing a university that doesn't require this but I feel like you should probably get it anyways to be safe. Check out Emedmal for medical malpractice insurance quotes. They usually have decent rates.

In the medical staffing industry, the techniques and tools employed to place, contract and recruit are all so standardized. They would entirely differ on the individual preferences of each staffing agency such as the goals, degree of dedication, welfare, and the monthly quota taken.

You have organizations that allow you to get HOCE and cover you with Malpractice liability insurance as well. You don't have to go through the hassle of buying it separately, its a part of their services along with a lot of other services that they provide for IMG's applying for residency in the US. Ask me and I will provide you with the information if you are still interested.

If you are still looking for insurance, you may also look at Capson for medical malpractice insurance: I've heard great things about them. They provide insurance in several states. Check out the States We Cover page to see if your state is one that they cover.
