Argosy University in Orange said it will launch a Master of Law in Compliance online degree program with a health law concentration.

The program starts in September and can be done in a year; it’s intended for healthcare professionals who aren’t attorneys but want to increase their knowledge of compliance issues in healthcare law.

The program will teach how to identify legal issues that can arise in their work, how to minimize legal risks in decision making, and how to communicate effectively with lawyers.

The dean and faculty of Western State College of Law at Argosy University developed the program.

Argosy University is a system of for-profit colleges owned by Education Management Corp. in Pittsburgh.
