This is a survey course covering legal issues in health care delivery, financing, and the responsibilities of health care professionals to patients. In addition to presenting essential material for those intending to represent health care organizations, the course offers students of all backgrounds an introduction to a subject that constitutes one-seventh of the U.S. economy. Although the course will include traditional areas of interest such as medical malpractice, it will emphasize the recent, rapid expansion of managed care and the ongoing transformation of health care from a regulated profession to a regulated industry.
