The Jaharis Health Law Institute is thrilled to be partnering with Dignity Health Global Education (DHGE) to offer an online health law certificate for health professionals. The initial certificate will teach participants to identify and apply legal rules in the health care setting. It will survey many of the key topics in the field of health law, including an overview of the U.S. legal system, health care delivery systems (including Medicare, Medicaid, and health insurance law), informed consent, surrogate decision-making, fraud and abuse statutes, medical malpractice, and oversight of health care quality. The certificate, which will be rolled out in 2020, translates theory into real-world examples, enabling participants to issue spot in a complicated and shifting legal and regulatory environment. As a leader in health law education, the Jaharis Health Law Institute is excited to work with DHGE, an expert in comprehensive, industry-relevant education programs, to create this exceptional new workforce development offering in health law.
