MDA National, one of Australia’s medical indemnity companies, are soon running elections for positions on their board. Medical indemnity insurance is a key, and often overlooked, cog in clinical practice. Every medical practitioner must have medical indemnity insurance, but many medical students have not spent a great deal of time analysing the policies of the various medical indemnity companies.

Medical students, as members, are encouraged to participate in the election process when they receive voting forms. This particular election is notable for the nomination of a doctor-in-training, Dr Patrick Mahar. Dr Mahar’s election platform is focused on engaging medical students and doctors in training.

MSCV encourages all medical students in Victoria to read the statements provided by all nominees and participate in the vote. A medical student vote is equal to that of any other member of MDA National.
