The health care industry is expected to have the fastest employment growth of any sector until 2024.1 Simultaneously, the industry is facing unprecedented change from technological innovation and new regulation. The increase in regulatory oversight, as well as the demand for health care reform, is impacting the delivery of services and the health care economy.
This complex and ever-changing environment demands that those in administrative, regulatory, managerial, and advocacy roles in health care know how to operate within the legal framework behind these changes. Designed for health care and health science professionals, the Master of Studies in Law in Health Law & Policy does just this, providing the tools necessary to navigate the law, in a flexible, accessible degree format.
Working professionals can earn their degree in less than two years without coming to campus.
All courses are designed specifically for and uniquely tailored to working professionals. Students take all classes with their cohort and MSL peers, not with JD candidates or students in other law programs who seek a different type of legal training. The health law electives focus on the complex and rapidly changing industry, to provide health care professionals with the tools to navigate the increasingly regulated delivery of services.
