Hill Student Writing Competition–Medical & Legal Collaboration

The Florida State University Center for Innovative Collaboration in Medicine in Law invites paper submissions for the Hill Student Writing Competition. Papers must be between 1,200 and 5,000 words (including title page, body, footnotes, figures, and tables, if any) and must respond to the following question:

There is a consensus that the U.S. health care system is frequently characterized by the excessive and unnecessary provision of medical services. One of the impediments to rationalizing medical practice to reduce tests, procedures, and treatments that are not clinically indicated and appropriate for particular patients is the perception by practicing health care professionals that the prevalent and often overused tests, procedures, and treatments are compelled by the current American legal system, and that health care professionals’ efforts to reduce the current waste and inefficiency will result in their expanded exposure to malpractice litigation and liability. Discuss the ways in which the medical and legal professions may work together collaboratively to address the problem of excessive, unnecessary, wasteful, and inefficient provision of medical services in the U.S.

The law student whose paper is selected as the outstanding law paper will receive a $250 award. Submissions are due by midnight (EST) on January 2, 2017. For more information or for questions, please visit http://med.fsu.edu/userFiles/file/2017%20Student%20Writing%20Competition.pdf.
