Cleveland-Marshall College of Law is offering a groundbreaking educational opportunity for J.D. as well as non-J.D. students with its new Health Care Compliance Certificate program, a post-professional certification that trains students for sought-after skills in today’s evolving health-care industry. This program, one of just five in the country currently offered, is anticipated to appeal to healthcare compliance officers, practicing attorneys, and health professionals - including doctors, nurses, social workers and health care administrators - as well as current law students.

As the health care compliance industry continues to grow and regulations become more advanced, many compliance officers need to further their legal knowledge or obtain education specialized to the industry. This 18-credit compliance certificate program has been made available by C|M|LAW to fill that gap.

Students will take courses focusing on the areas of Health Care Law, Health Care Compliance, Health Care Finance, Health Care Fraud & Abuse, Health Law & Ethics, HIPAA & Privacy and Health Care Compliance Skills. 

Those non-J.D. students pursuing a Health Care Compliance Certificate will interact and sit in the courses with traditional J.D. students, however they will be graded separately from the J.D. curve. This meets the demands of current working professionals, looking to further their education and career in the healthcare field.

Students must complete the curriculum with a minimum cumulative grade point average of B (3.0) in health law courses, with no grade below C+
