Course Description

LAW 917 - Health Law & Policy Research

This course is designed to provide an introduction to specific sources and research skills relevant to the study of health policy and the practice of health law. No prerequisites are required. This course is not a substitute for a full semester substantive health law course. We will discuss the basics of each topic at the level that a general practitioner would need to know. Although many of the topics will be of special interest to students intending to practice in the area of health law, some are also of general interest. Topics covered include administrative law research, medical malpractice and expert witnesses, insurance coverage including Medicare and Medicaid, pharmaceutical and medical device regulations, health/medical research, looking for information about providers (e.g., physicians, hospitals), and end of life issues. We will cover key primary and secondary sources for health and medical law research: state and federal statutes, regulations and other administrative materials, state and federal case law, subject‐specific secondary sources, medical research literature, and sources for current awareness.
