This Specialization is designed to help you navigate the complex legal framework that governs modern health systems. You will learn the fundamentals of American health law, then explore how privacy law shapes the relationship between healthcare providers and their patients. You will also learn how intellectual property law influences everything from the pharmaceutical industry, to medical research, to cutting-edge ethical issues involved in emerging technologies such as DNA-testing. Finally, the specialization will conclude with a study of how other countries vary in their approaches to solving the common problems that face all health systems.

This course was informative and I like the style of the professor. A nice refresher. I wish I could earn continuing education credits.
Excellent Course and professor, Great service of Coursera to have such knowledge available for learners
Excellent course deserves its own micro masters from the Uni. This needs to be expanded.
