SPECIAL ENROLLMENT ISSUES
- NSU Law's, two-year, 30-credit Master's in Health Law program
teaches non-lawyer, health care professionals the skills necessary
to effectively identify, understand and deal with the intricate set
of legal issues riddling today's health care environment. The
program, taught by experts in the interrelationships of the practice
of law and professional health care, is intensely focused on the
significant role of the law in health care delivery, regulation,
management and public policy.
The curriculum examines core legal concepts, procedures and policy
interpretations affecting the health care industry. The critical
knowledge acquired imbues our graduates with a legal awareness,
sensitizing them to health care issues, giving them the ability to
gauge the scope and severity of potential problems, and enabling
them to recognize when and where a lawyer's assistance is needed.
Accommodating the need and desire of most health care professionals
to remain in their present location and employment and, at the same
time, draw upon a nationwide faculty, the MHL program offers a
unique opportunity via NSU Law's state-of-the-art, internet-based
distance learning technology. The majority of work, with the
exception of attendance at two or three brief on-campus Institutes,
will be accomplished conveniently from the student's own home, on
the student's own timing, without compromise of career or other
