Graduate Interim Professional Liability Insurance

(Available to new graduates of a Canadian accredited sonography program only)

A graduate with interim liability insurance can work but must be directly supervised by a credentialed sonographer or radiologist.  They are responsible to sign off on all the cases that you (the graduate) complete under their supervision.  The supervision will vary with the level of confidence the supervisor(s) have with your skills.  Initially, they may rescan every patient and then transition to less involvement.  This will be at the discretion of the supervising sonographer(s) or radiologist.  There is no issue with you completing the case and tech notes if your supervising sonographer or radiologist is comfortable with it and the case is checked before the patient is sent home.

Conditions of eligibility include:

  • Work must be supervised by a credentialed sonographer or radiologist (they are responsible to sign off on all the cases that you complete under their supervision) during the period covered by Graduate interim insurance.
  • Coverage is for a maximum period of up to 4 years from the date of program completion and cannot be extended.
  • Insurance coverage will automatically switch to full insurance coverage once the Sonography Canada credential is awarded, normally upon successful completion of the Sonography Canada exams. At this time, the requirement for work under supervision is lifted. Graduate Interim insurance coverage is not extendable.
  • The cost for PLI for Graduate interim insurance is ½ the regular rate for their first year.
