Join Us for Our 13th Annual Health Law and Policy Summer Institute

Summer 2020

Interested in making connections and furthering your knowledge of the U.S. healthcare industry? Consider us your online hub for health law education and networking.

The Health Law and Policy Summer Institute at American University Washington College of Law welcomes students and experienced professionals from across the nation throughout the summer. Join us for:

• Opportunities to digitally network with health law practitioners, summer associates and interns;

• Virtual panel sessions with leading health law practitioners; and

Intensive courses on practice-oriented topics such as the challenges and opportunities presented by innovative health care technologies (including artificial intelligence, telehealth and mobile health applications), the False Claims Act (the government’s primary enforcement tool for combating fraud, waste, and abuse in the health care industry), and the complex regulatory framework surrounding the U.S. pharmaceutical industry.

All class time for all courses will be held remotely through Zoom, an on-line remote platform.  Course participants are required to have a device with a working microphone, camera, and internet connection to be able to fully engage and participate in all aspects of the virtual classroom lectures, discussions and exercises.  Attendance will be taken and attendance in all class hours is required to receive academic credit (or CLE, if applicable).

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 online classroom, join us for our free virtual summer series during which expert panelists will discuss the latest health law developments.
