Healthcare Law and Policy

→ Professors About the Programme

• Lecturer, Assoc. Prof. Agne Sirinskiene :
The reason for developing this study programme was due to the complexity of the modern healthcare sector. The need to address new emerging issues in euro-integration require legal specialized knowledge in healthcare policy, in the specifics of healthcare and in various fields of health technologies. Current research shows that lawyers who have specialized training in the healthcare law and understand health issues are considered to be far more valuable to their employers than traditional private or public law practitioners, working with healthcare issues without any specific training.

• Andrius Narbekovas, Member of the Lithuanian National Health Council:
This Joint Master’s Degree programme offers a unique opportunity to study healthcare law in an interdisciplinary environment. It integrates various spheres of law and policy together with bioethics, healthcare and biomedicine.
