MIGA - Free indemnity insurance for medical interns

Free insurance protection for interns

Ongoing support & advice throughout your career

Even though you're now working in a hospital, the insurance from your employer can be limited and may not cover you in a range of difficult situations.

With an experienced insurer like MIGA behind you, you can feel comfortable knowing you'll have access to independent advice and representation in the event of a complaint, allegation or other unfamiliar scenario.
