Course Description:

This short course meets Mondays and Wednesdays, 4:00-6:00 p.m., March 30th through April 15th.

As the American health care system evolves, the role of physicians is constantly being transformed. Historically, the medical profession has held the dominant position in most decisions regarding the delivery of care. That dominance however is being challenged today in great part because of the explosive growth of the health sector. There are now simply too many resources and too many stakeholders in healthcare for medicine to maintain its historically unique position. This seminar will examine the social, political and economic pressures that are now evident and will focus on the changes occurring as a result of the corporatization of contemporary medical practice. There have been several key legal, structural and regulatory interventions that have defined the shape and direction of the clinical practice changes. A number of them will be examined in some detail in the readings and the discussions.
