This Course Project gives you with an opportunity to choose one vital health insurance, managed care, or healthcare reform challenge (or problem to resolve) and analyze it in greater depth in a written format.
The paper must critically analyze the issues associated to your topic in the context of the present healthcare environment, and as well considering future directions in U.S. medical care. Web references, books and professional journal articles must be considered as references. And don't overlook the DeVry Online Library as a significant source of information for your paper!
Your Course Project must be 7 to 10 pages in length, with 10-point font, and double-spaced. Comprise a cover page, table of contents, introduction, body of report, summary or conclusion, and works cited.
