Law Firm Program: Health Law (7050)

This course will provide students the opportunity to engage in a simulated corporate health care transaction between a nonprofit hospital and a physician. Students will assume the role of an associate in a law firm and represent the hospital in its efforts to recruit a physician to the hospital's community by offering the physician financial incentives such as a guaranteed practice income and free malpractice insurance. Students will advise the hospital on the key legal considerations in entering into such an arrangement and then negotiate and draft the necessary documents to complete the transaction. Students will have the opportunity to communicate regularly with their "client." Research and drafting exercises will be assigned on a weekly basis.
