Message from Director Asha Scielzo

Asha Scielzo

As the health care industry continues to rapidly expand and evolve, the intersection of law and health grows increasingly more complex.  Technology, reform, and changes in the way in which health care is accessed, delivered, and reimbursed, create an environment ripe for disruption.  There is a growing demand for lawyers and compliance professionals who understand the broad spectrum of legal and policy issues that arise in this dynamic and multi-faceted field.  The Health Law and Policy Summer Institute at AUWCL equips students and practitioners with the education, training, and practical skills to not only gain a deep understanding of the health care industry, but also to keep pace with the continually shifting landscape.   All courses are taught by expert practitioners, with emphasis on practical insights and application.  Beyond the classroom, join us for our exciting "Lunch and Learn" series.  See you this summer!
