M.Jur. in Healthcare Compliance Law

As the healthcare 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 healthcare privacy regulation.

Ideal candidates for the 30-credit-hour M.Jur. program’s healthcare compliance concentration are working in healthcare 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.

“At well over $3 trillion per year, the healthcare 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 healthcare providers and others in navigating this complex industry.”

-André Hampton
