But we need to be able to understand how those apply in health care. For example, Medicare, Medicaid. Those represent a substantial portion of the income to any health care organization, a doctor's office or a hospital, and those are not taught in a standard business school finance class. They are taught in a health care finance class, in our MHA program.
