Online Master’s in Healthcare Law & Policy Programs

sponsored


Healthcare is one of the most regulated industries in the world, and the introduction of an estimated 10,000 pages of legislation in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) added thousands of new regulations and policies and millions of new patients. With trillions of dollars invested in healthcare and a rapidly evolving legal landscape, the stakes and complexities in the area of health law and policy have never been higher. Those with a comprehensive understanding of both healthcare and law and how they interact with each other can not only advance their career but also advocate for better patient care and reformed legislation.

Healthcare law reaches into a vast number of professions. Advanced practice nurses, paralegals, physicians, insurance professionals, community service managers, and social workers can all benefit from furthering their education by obtaining a master’s degree in health law and policy. Such master’s degrees are often paired with a law school but do not require a Juris Doctor (JD) or Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score to attend, thus providing an excellent legal education that bolsters one’s current career track instead of deviating from it.

Professionals who do have their JD, however, can pursue a master of laws (LLM) in health law and policy to specialize in the legal intricacies that affect large corporations, small businesses, local governments, and patients alike. With a field as sprawling as healthcare, sub-specialties and minor concentrations reach across the spectrum, and whether one is considering a role in the public or private sector, options exist for a deeply targeted education—whether as part of an LLM, a master of health policy, or even a focused specialization in compliance.

The Affordable Care Act passed in 2010, and there’s a growing demand for interpretation, implementation, and further reform advocacy by educated professionals. With the new American Healthcare Act looming on the horizon, the demand for these skills is expected to only increase. Fortunately, some of the world’s best universities and professors are training a new crop of specialists to meet that demand, and the programs are more accessible than ever.
