The Medical Protection Society (MPS) watches out for more than 280,000 medical doctors and dentists working in more than 40 countries. Founded in 1892, the mutual and not-for-profit aid society offers legal advice and representation; lobbies on behalf of the medical and dental professions; provides public relations and risk management consulting; and indemnifies docs against legal costs and damages when they've been ordered to pay up for clinical negligence. MPS, however, is not an insurance company: The society offers funds and other services to its membership body at the discretion of a council of representative members.
