Healthcare Policy and Interest Groups Paper
A significant feature of the health policy market and policymaking process is the presence of interest groups. These groups exist to serve the interests of their members by analyzing healthcare policy changes, and keeping members informed. These interest groups also work to sway the policymaking process to provide members with some advantage.
In this 8-10 page paper, students will choose an interest group from this list: Association of American Medical Colleges, Association of University Programs in Health Administration, Biotechnology Industry Organization, or Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America.
Students will conduct an analysis of the interest group to include the ways with which the group serves the interests of its members. APA formatting, and a minimum of 8 professional references are required.
