University of Miami,
Miami

Shalala, former U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services under President Bill Clinton, teaches one of the biggest and most popular courses at the University of Miami, POL 536: U.S. Healthcare Crisis: The Politics of Healthcare Reform. The class usually has an enrollment each spring semester of about 200 students. The class even has its own Facebook page, which it notes is not affiliated with Shalala or UM. One former student who rated Shalala's class online wrote: "Yes, there are a lot of students, but you never get bored."
