HSMP 572 Health Politics

This course is designed to survey the inter-workings of health care legislation. By examining the nuts and bolts of health law development, a better understanding of health policy development within the context of the political system can be realized. Health legislation is examined in terms of historical analysis and the legislative process, including the role of interest groups, the use of information in the political system, the role of bureaucracy, and the budget process. This is the same course as PAH 572 and may be taken only once for credit. Recommended corequisite: HSMP 574.
