Health Care Attorney Job Description

A health care attorney deals with laws and regulations that relate to the health care field. The legal practice of a health care attorney is interdisciplinary and focuses on the various entities that comprise the world of heath care, such as hospitals, doctors, long-term care facilities, medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical manufacturers, and medical transportation companies. Health care lawyers represent these entities in a host of matters, including complying with health care laws and regulations, obtaining financing for construction of new health care facilities, and dealing with health care fraud and insurance reimbursement issues. Health care attorneys often have medical backgrounds, such as being former doctors, nurses or hospital administrators.

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
