Healthcare Regulations

This course reviews the evolution of Health Care as a profession into Health Care as an industry, and critically examines the conflicts between the two. Emphasis is placed on understanding the regulatory influences on both e.g. legislative regulation, market force influences and consumer-driven initiatives. The course objectives are achieved through a combination of didactic lectures and focused discussion of case decisions, both classical and contemporary. The course grade is achieved by submitting a paper at the end of the semester in form and length consistent with the school writing requirement.
