Center for Patient Partnerships is currently accepting applications for summer 2009

The Center for Patient Partnerships, an interdisciplinary health advocacy center of the schools of law, medicine & public health, nursing, and pharmacy, is accepting applications from law students for its 2009 summer and fall clinical.  Second or third year law students interested in health law, administrative law, disability, and employment issues should consider applying.  Students may participate for a range of credits (3-7) which corresponds to 15-35 hours a week of advocacy work in the summer, and 12-28 hours in the fall.

Students can expect to have several of their own clients, participate in our triage process to evaluate new clients and assist patients with critical advocacy issues, and to work on an interdisciplinary team.  Advocacy work at the center is comprehensive, so law students will provide advocacy on legal and non-legal topics.  Several stipends will be available - stipend applications will be forwarded to all Clinical applicants on April 1st.

To apply to the clinical, complete the application available at our website:
