I started teaching health law relatively recently-in the fall of 2010, just after the Affordable Care Act ("ACA") was enacted, but before much of it had been implemented. This timing has been a blessing because I started with a fresh slate rather than adding the ACA on top of a previously developed course. It has also been a curse, but ultimately I appreciate that I started teaching the course at a time when the ACA was under constant threat. The ever-evolving nature of health law means that health law teachers must always bear in mind a goal that applies to all teaching: we must prepare students for the challenges they will face over the coming half-century without knowing exactly what those challenges will look like. Knowledge of current health law statutes, regulations, and case law serves primarily as the medium in which we practice skills together in the classroom.
