Deducting malpractice insurance tail coverage with W-2 and 1099 income


I left my previous position in April 2019 and had to pay for my own malpractice tail coverage. Most of my income is W-2 from medical practice, although I was a shareholder at the time. I also have some limited 1099 income from a side gig which did require that I was a physician with hospital privileges, which would require malpractice insurance as well.

I have figure out that the unreimbursed employee expenses expenses deduction has gone away. Can I reasonably deduct the malpractice tail against my side gig income?
