The College of Professional Studies offers a 12-credit graduate certificate program in corporate compliance that draws faculty and expertise from the Milken Institute School of Public Health's Department of Health Policy and Management and a leading health care law firm in Washington, DC. The program focuses on health care laws and regulations as well as the tools and strategies for creating effective corporate compliance programs. 

Students who successfully complete the requirements for the certificate program may apply those credits as electives in the master of science (MS) in health policy degree program. All other degree requirements for the MS program must be fulfilled. Visit the program website for additional information.

Designed for working professionals, the 12-credit graduate certificate in health care corporate compliance (GW HCC Program or Program) provides students with a uniquely comprehensive education in health care corporate compliance.
