What is the difference between malpractice insurance and liability insurance?

These terms are both interchangeable. Malpractice Insurance is a liability insurance specifically designed to protect medical professionals.

Does having my own individual professional liability insurance policy make me a more likely target for a lawsuit?

Absolutely not. In fact your insurance status is not discovered until you have already been named in a lawsuit. At that point you are ALWAYS better off having your own individual liability protection to defend you against the allegations.
