How would you describe the MJ in Health Law to those looking for the right health law program?
The program is a comprehensive overview of principles and laws that are applicable to the health care environment. The variety of classes allows you to customize the program to your career path and interests. Although an online program, we have live class sessions via Zoom, which allows for open discussion on pertinent topics. An advantage to this format is quite apparent at the moment—while many other schools and programs were scrambling for continuity as the COVID-19 pandemic escalated, our program continued with no interruptions in the learning process.
The access to professors and resources is infinitely easier with current technology. Not saying I’m a dinosaur, but my undergraduate days pre-dated email and the internet. The online resources like Lexus are amazing for research purposes.
