Program Overview

The Health Care Collaboration and Dispute Resolution concentration is designed for an industry where working together effectively and defusing disputes is often literally a life or death issue. The complexity of the health care system makes arbitration and mediation more advantageous for the parties involved in a dispute than litigation. Using alternative dispute resolution methods and conflict management strategies, trained health care mediators can help resolve simple and complex issues between providers and patients and their families.
