Lead the Future of Health

Reimagine Your Career with the New Master of Science in Health Law and Strategy

Offered Jointly by NYU School of Law and NYU’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, with Support from Manatt Health

Health care today is like a Rubik's Cubeā€”its aspects seemingly impossible to align. To imagine a future that isn't bound by conflicting financial incentives and regulatory schemes, tomorrow's leaders must not only study the past but master the strategy, law, policy and technology that will enable them to innovate a different path.

William S. Bernstein

Program Overview

NYU’s unique master’s degree program in health law and strategy is designed to prepare health care leaders to shape the future of their organizations.  Its interdisciplinary approach will prepare students to manage strategically in the complex legal context of today’s health care system—and gain the critical skills and multi-faceted perspectives to drive innovation in the highly regulated health sector.  Manatt Health is supporting the development of the curriculum, as well as delivering a 16-week course on Health Law and Regulation that will explore the legal, operational and ethical issues that health care professionals face in the U.S. health care system.

The Master of Science in Health Law and Strategy (MS HLS) is a 30-credit, one-year program for professionals with eight or more years of health-related experience (legal training is not required). Its goal is to equip emerging leaders with the ability to analyze, navigate and lead organizations through industry transformation. It is the only graduate degree program for professionals that integrates and leverages the expertise, resources and professional networks of a leading law school and a leading school of public policy.

Register Now

President Biden set an ambitious health care agenda in his campaign and maintained that focus as he took office. The Biden administration has expressed a strong commitment to “protect and build on the Affordable Care Act, meet the health care needs created by the pandemic, reduce health care costs, protect access to reproductive health care and make our health system easier to navigate and more equitable.”

What levers of change can the Biden administration use to advance its vision of greater health equity, expanded access to coverage and care, and improved outcomes? What can we expect in 2022 and beyond as the administration pursues its goal of reshaping the health care landscape? In a new webinar from Manatt Health, NYU Law and NYU Wagner, a panel of thought leaders reviews how the Biden administration is working to reimagine our health care system—and looks ahead at how new policies, programs and priorities could impact health care stakeholders.
