U Toledo adds health law certificate

One year after announcing a JD/MD degree, the University of Toledo is adding certificate in health law.

“Health law is an area of increasing intricacy and expanding relevance,” said Elizabeth McCuskey, assistant professor of law and faculty coordinator for the health law certificate program. “Our health law concentration reflects the skills and substantive knowledge health lawyers find most valuable in their practices to meet and anticipate these challenges,”

The Certificate of Concentration in Health Law joins the College’s five existing certificates of concentration in criminal law, environmental law, intellectual property law, international law, and labor and employment law.

To obtain the certificate, students must complete at least three health law courses and a substantial research paper on a health law topic, for a total of 10 credit hours. Students may also apply up to three credits from one of the College’s health law externships toward the credit minimum.
