Course objectives 
In general, the course 'Health Care Law from a Comparative and European perspective' aims to increase the knowledge, understanding and experience of students in health care law (including medical ethics).

The module attempts to make students (law students, health policy makers and other interested persons) acquainted with both national and international dimensions of health care law. Its relevance to Central and Eastern European students concern the effects of international (e.g., European Union) regulation on national legal decision-making. As such, the course attempts to contribute to the further development of legal education in Central and Eastern Europe. 

Simultaneously, the course aims at exchanging knowledge and experiences between both scholars and students all over Europe. Such an exchange from other countries can enhance understanding of the meaning behind health care legal and ethical principles and provides an avenue for shared advice among those countries with commonalities in their systems.
