Medical Professional Legal Consultant


This exciting program prepares Medical Professionals for a career in the legal field as medical professional legal consultants. Building on the medical education and clinical experience of medical professionals, this course provides students with fundamental skills necessary to advise law firms, health care providers, insurance companies, and governmental agencies regarding medically-related issues and to appear in court as expert witnesses. The curriculum of this course is designed to comply with the educational guidelines specified by the American Association of Legal Nurse Consultants.

This six week course is approved for 45 Category 1 continuing medical education (CME) hours by the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA). This course will provide a comprehensive analysis of the principles and practices of medical professional legal consulting (MPLC), with an emphasis on law and expert witness testimony.
