Command. Communicate. Innovate.
Law is the most powerful tool in health care. Those who can communicate the intricacies of law and policy are in high demand since today’s health care industry is heavily regulated by federal and state laws. While every generation is faced with the opportunity to innovate solutions that overcome the health care hurdles of its time, the landscape of health law has never been more challenging.

What are the advantages of a degree in health law over an MHA or MPH?
A master’s in health administration is solely business focused. The master’s in public health is typically designed to facilitate fieldwork at the community level. Neither of these programs provides you with the legal angle that can give your career a competitive and authoritative edge. To gain the respect of C-level executives and the power to implement change, you need to develop your command of health law.
