All students enrolled in the M.D. program at the College of Medicine are required to have Disability Insurance.  Disability insurance provides benefits to medical students if a disability from a covered illness or injury prevents them from attending classes or clerkships.  The College of Medicine recommends enrollment in the American Medical Association’s plan which has a $200,000 payout and has an annual cost of $55.00. While enrollment in this plan is not mandatory, proof of comparable coverage is required if the M.D. student decides to enroll in another plan.

For information on the plan, log on to and enter code 644245. There you will find specific information on plan coverage, as well as information on global emergency travel services. Disability insurance is paid for via tuition and fees assessment.

If you have comparable coverage, please contact the College of Medicine Office of Student Affairs for verification and approval.

Information on enrollment will be made available in the summer prior to orientation.
