With the expanding national focus on healthcare access, the changing role of managed care and the increasing enforcement initiatives by federal agencies, healthcare has become one of the most dynamic and expanding areas of law. The practice of health law requires a broad understanding of the increasingly diverse and complex array of substantive and regulatory matters as they relate to the delivery of healthcare services.
