The need for lawyers trained in health law has been steadily increasing as the result of three related developments. For the past decade, the health care industry has become increasingly complex in part because of rapid advances in medical technology. These advances have raised many ethical concerns. And the cost of medical care has become increasingly expensive; a development that has created a difficult social challenge, in particular for the 47 million Americans without health insurance.
In response to the related developments, the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University has established the Fellowship for Health Law and Policy. Its objective is to train lawyers in health law to represent medical providers, patients and the health care industry, and to advance health law policy.
