This course is designed to increase the awareness of students in the Health Law Certificate Program of the rapidly changing health care industry and the equally rapidly changing field of health law and policy. Understanding the law regulating the health care industry requires an understanding of the industry itself. Another purpose of the course is to expose students to a more in-depth treatment of selected topics than is provided in the basic survey course in Health Law and Policy. The course also exposes students to topics that are not covered in the survey course, providing a broader view of the field of health law, which helps in the selection of other course offerings and of a topic for the Faculty Supervised Writing Requirement. Classes are taught primarily by leading experts in the fields of health management, health policy, and health law.
