Can Medical Students be Sued for Medical Malpractice?

Yes. Medical students are not seasoned doctors or nurses, and they certainly need the knowledge of hands-on training to complete their education, but if a medical student makes a mistake that puts a patient in harm’s way, he or she can be held accountable.

In fact, medical students are insured with medical malpractice coverage in case a mistake occurs during their training. Either the school at which the students are enrolled will supply this coverage or the facility in which they are training will supply the coverage.
