About the Program

Unlike our other MJ curricular concentrations, the Health Law & Administration (China) is a one year full-time degree program. Students enter the program as a group in early July and proceed through the program as a cohort taking the same courses at the same time throughout the program. Our cohort-based Health Law and Administration curriculum is designed in collaboration with the Health Human Resources Development Center (HHRDC) of the National Health Commission of the Peoples Republic of China and the Asia Pacific Health Corporation.

The Health Human Resources Development Center (HHRDC) of the National Health Commission of China was established in December 1998. Since its establishment, HHRDC has been dedicated to the development and services for human resources health under the direct leadership of the National Health Commission.

The Asia Pacific Health Corporation, headquartered in Houston, Texas was founded in 2018. Since its establishment, APEC Health has been committed to being the bridge to connect the healthcare industry in China to the world and promote international medical collaborations.
