“At well over $3 trillion per year, the health care economy accounts for over 17 percent of the U.S. economy. However, health care is also governed by a complex set of specialized laws and regulations that affect not only health care service providers, but also all employers and all individuals. Our programs exist to develop our students’ capacity to guide health care providers and others in navigating this complex industry.”
