Healthcare has become an increasingly specialized area of the law. This area of concentration provides students with appropriate general background courses and necessary specialized healthcare law classes, including a clinical experience, for students interested in the field of healthcare law. As part of the program, students participate in an interdisciplinary internship that takes place within a hospital. Although the students are assigned to the general counsel or legal affairs office, the student interacts with and learns from the medical school personnel. The goal of the interdisciplinary experience is to expose students to a variety of legal, medical, ethical and administrative issues.
