Health Care Law and the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act
August 18-20, 2014 | 17.75 CLE credits (including 1.0 ethics credit) for attending all three days
The Health Law Certificate program is designed to broaden your knowledge and deepen your ability to engage health law issues. This three day program was designed by experienced practitioners who know the most relevant and important topics in engaging important and emerging areas of Health Law.
Topics include regulatory compliance, bioethics, malpractice, and of course, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Most importantly, during this program you will receive perspectives on topics from plaintiffs, defendants, and regulators.
Health Law is a growing area of practice. For those lawyers wanting to learn more about how to practice in this area or broaden the information they already have, this program was designed for you. Current practitioners will also gain an update on substantive issues facing the practice of health law, especially in regard to the impact of health law reform on established health care laws.
