On Jan. 29, Cooley Law School’s Health Law Society hosted a panel discussion on exploring careers in healthcare law, featuring health law professionals from Michigan.
Attendees had the opportunity to learn from the attorney panelists involved in health law corporate settings, and gain an understanding in health law as a career and what life is like as an in-house counsel in the corporate world. The expert panelists provided tips and insights for those seeking a career path in the healthcare field.
Panelists included, Julie Janeway of Advize Health, Liz Callahan Morris of Henry Ford Health, Jennifer Dewane of Elevance Health, Tim Gutwald of Mentavi Health and ADHD Online, Julie Janeway of Advize Health, and Nicole Stratton of Corewell Health.
“Healthcare comprises one-fifth of the U.S. economy,” Janeway said during the panel discussion. She is general counsel, director, and healthcare administration/operations support at Advize Health. “It is one of the most regulated industries in the nation and it is engaged in a plethora of business and commercial aspects. Clinicians keep healthcare running, while health lawyers keep the business of healthcare running. No matter what your area of legal interest, there is very likely a place for you in health law. If you are looking to pursue your passion as a lawyer but would like a new environment in which to pursue it, join the State Bar of Michigan Healthcare Law Section. We would love to meet you!”
