COVID-19 Information for AAOMS Members: Updates and Resources

OMSNIC – Resident Resources

OMS National Insurance Company, RRG (OMSNIC)

OMSNIC has been the leading provider of professional liability insurance to OMSs for more than 30 years. OMSNIC has a proven track record of aggressively defending claims brought against its policyholders. Highly trained claims specialists and expert defense counsel repeatedly achieve a 94 percent success rate at trial.

OMSNIC has a number of resources available online that residents may find useful.

OMSNICase is a collection of informative patient case studies submitted by OMS residents, faculty and clinicians. The case studies – representing interesting clinical cases, complications and outcomes – can be used to assess and encourage diagnostic and treatment decisions.

The quarterly OMS Guardian newsletter provides articles with information on patient safety and risk management issues that are important to oral and maxillofacial surgeons.
