WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., June 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Wake Forest University's fully online Master of Studies in Law (MSL) degree and certificate program's innovativetelemedicine course is the first of its kind to be taught in a law school, according to the American Telemedicine Association.
Recent studies show the telemedicine course, which will be offered beginning in August 2017,
At the helm of this field is Wake Forest University's trailblazer MSL Adjunct Instructor Bryan Arkwright, a managing consultant at Schumacher Clinical Consulting.
"Digital health, telemedicine and mHealth are driving tremendous change and growth in the healthcare industry in the U.S. and globally," he says. "However, the number of dedicated courses across higher learning institutions is low. Wake Forest's MSL course is unique at a time when knowledge of telemedicine is in high demand. It's something students can leverage immediately."
Wake Forest Law's online MSL telemedicine course explores the legal landscape within the rapidly growing global industry. Students learn to recognize the risks inherent in the provision of telehealth services, and analyze how each of the relevant stakeholders can mitigate risk while improving patient-care and access.
"The operations and delivery of high quality, patient-centered care through telemedicine is complex," Awkright said. "But it is a true game changer for patients and clinicians across the globe. I'm especially pleased to be involved with this program, sharing industry knowledge and best practices with students."
The part-time online MSL degree and certificate program is specially designed for professionals who need to navigate, but not practice, the law to better manage risk in the workplace. The asynchronous program, taught by Wake Forest Law full-time faculty in collaboration with industry experts like Arkwright, allows students flexibility to work on weekly assignments at their convenience. The custom-designed courses are relevant to today's legal challenges and focus on current issues, allowing students to add immediate value to their workplace.
The program embraces the values of Wake Forest University, globally recognized for its culture of in-depth student/faculty engagement, building a personalized student experience. Applications currently are being accepted for Fall 2017. For more information or to apply, visit msl.law.wfu.edu.
