Hamline University School of Law's Health Law Institute has been accredited by the Compliance Certification Board (CCB) to offer a Health Care Corporate Compliance Certificate education program. Hamline's certificate program is the only one of its kind in the Upper Midwest and one of only four programs in the nation to be accredited by CCB. The 13-credit program is designed to be completed within one year, with courses offered in the evening so the program is accessible for both working professionals and students. To become a CCB certified compliance officer students must pass the CCB exam. The Health Law Institute designed the education program to comprehensively focus on those areas included in the CCB exam.
"Now, more than ever, health care organizations, medical device companies, research facilities and other health-related industries need trained compliance professionals to navigate through a sea of complex state and federal laws and regulations," noted Barbara Colombo, who will direct the Health Care Corporate Compliance Certificate program under the auspices of Hamline's Health Law Institute. "People who complete this program will be equipped to not only pass the CCB exam for certification, but also be able to develop and execute meaningful compliance programs, and effectively manage and resolve compliance violations."
Classes will begin in fall 2008. For more information and complete course descriptions, please visit www.hamline.edu/law/health or contact Health Law Institute Assistant Director Marcia K. Miller at 651-523-2625 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
