The Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree, offered by St. John’s University School of Law in Queens, N.Y., provides extensive legal training in the classroom with engaged faculty through hands-on clinical, co-curricular and externship experiences.
The J.D./M.P.A. in Health Administration at the Long Island University (LIU) in Brookville, N.Y., ensures a strong grounding in the principles of health care management and policy. The dual degree provides a comprehensive understanding of the interaction between the law and management arenas.
Health care administration is a growing field in part because the provisions of health services regulation have been substantially expanding. Health care organizations and health care providers, therefore, increasingly need lawyers to assist them in complying with statutes, mandates, rules and regulations. In addition, lawyers are now recognized as members of the health care leadership management team and are sought for input and expertise regarding strategic planning and development endeavors. It can be difficult to break into this field, however, without some educational training and background in health care management and policy. The J.D./M.P.A. dual degree program affords this.
The M.P.A. degree is accredited by NASPAA. The J.D. degree is accredited by the American Bar Association.
