LAW 5475 - Comparative Health Law & Policy


Credit(s): 2
This course will cover several major areas of the law in a comparative fashion: health care organization and finance; obligations to patients on the part of health care professionals, institutions, and governments; bioethics; and public health law. The jurisdictions addressed will include the United States, select countries within continental Europe, and select countries with developing economies. The methodology of comparative analysis will be used to probe how the law, legal systems and legal institutions shape health care and health care systems, and do so from the varied perspectives of health care recipients, providers, and institutions. The assigned readings will generally be from authors whose laws are the subject of discussion. Considerable attention will be given to the impact of ongoing biomedical innovation on the future of health care.
