Professional Liability

As a veterinary student and a member of the California Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA), you are entitled to a full range of CVMA member benefits and services. A complimentary Professional Liability Insurance policy, designed specifically for California veterinary students, is being offered to all CVMA member veterinary students enrolled in either UC Davis or Western University. This policy provides important protection for you while you are enrolled in your educational programs and transition into clinical externships.

The CVMA Insurance Services Program, through our exclusive broker Veterinary Insurance Services Company (VISC), is making this policy available to you at no charge. The policy is underwritten by Allianz Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company, a leading insurer of the veterinary profession. This insurance policy would normally cost $192.00 annually; however it is being offered to you as a member benefit, courtesy of the CVMA! This annual policy will remain in effect for your current school year and is renewable for each year of veterinary school.

It is a fact of life that veterinary professionals need liability and malpractice insurance throughout their entire careers. The CVMA Insurance Services Program is committed to providing the most comprehensive business and personal coverage for veterinary professionals in California.

It’s easy to take advantage of this opportunity – just complete the Student Professional Liability Insurance Enrollment Form and return it to VISC. Upon receipt, VISC will mail you a Certificate of Insurance. For additional information on this and other CVMA insurance services, please contact VISC at 888.762.3143.

This insurance is only available to students enrolled in the veterinary school programs at either UC Davis, or Western University, Pomona.
