This course is open only to third-year students in the Health Law Certificate Program, and all third-year students in the program must take this course both Fall and Spring Semesters. The course meets for five two-hour evening sessions (6:30-8:30 p.m.) during each semester. Meetings are approximately every other week throughout the semester. Academic credit is recorded on students’ transcripts at the end of the second semester.

Students are required to read one book (there are two to choose from) in the fall semester on the history of health care in the U.S. and another in the spring semester on current health care reform efforts in the U.S.  In the fall, students will write a 3 page prospectus, based on the book they read, of how they plan to relate this book to health care reform. In the spring, students will write a 10 page paper expanding on the prospectus and the relationship between health care reform and the history of the U.S. health care system.
