Policy & Healthcare is an interest group which seeks to promote the understanding of policy and analysis of federal, state, and local policies that regulate healthcare and impact health outcomes. This group also explores the process of how such policy recommendations are created and how they become law. The group will increase knowledge and build capacity by holding informative sessions led by leaders in the field, such as policy analysts, elected officials, and staffers of law makers. By gaining a fundamental understanding of how laws and regulations are enacted, medical students will be more prepared to promote the best policies for our patients and ourselves.
