M.Jur. in Health Care Compliance Law (offered online)

Over the past three years, the landscape of health care and health care compliance has been reshaped by the COVID pandemic. Not only is job demand up by more than 30% in several key sectors, including the San Antonio metro area and the I-35 corridor, but corporate investment in funding such positions has also increased according to rising salaries. In a recent report by the Society of Human Resources Professionals, the top three priority areas for health care compliance professionals are evidencing compliance program effectiveness, improving program manager ongoing monitoring and increasing leadership support.

As the health care industry continues to grow and evolve in San Antonio and across the nation, professionals in the field are required to manage an increasing diversity of functions.

The industry has seen an increased emphasis on fraud prevention, an expansion of telemedicine and credentialing, as well as antitrust enforcement and health care privacy regulation.

Ideal candidates for the 30-credit-hour M.Jur. program’s health care compliance concentration are working in health care sectors that intersect with the law or are looking to pivot into the health field.

Program components are curated to offer the most efficient delivery of substantive compliance curriculum and procedural fundamentals. This concentration will familiarize you with those concepts required to obtain certification through the Compliance Certification Board.

See what our online Master of Jurisprudence in Health Care Compliance can offer you in terms of your own professional development and meeting these emerging industry needs.
