Health Care Law
The Health Care Law Course of Study is designed for students interested in learning about the legal regulation of health care access, quality, and cost.
The foundational courses introduce students to the basic structure of our health care delivery system: the relationship between different health care providers (e.g., physician groups and hospitals); their relationship with insurers (e.g., Medicaid, Medicare, managed care companies); the legal and social forces that control access to the health care system; and the public and private regulation of quality.
Students can use this foundation to further specialize in any of the following areas: business planning and regulatory compliance for health care companies; public interest advocacy to improve access and quality; bioethics and patient protections in research; biotechnology; and product liability and personal injury disputes.
