Reporter – Health Policy

Leading Washington news organization has an opening for a reporter to cover health policy.

Inside Washington Publishers' online news services and newsletters are widely recognized for their depth of reporting and experience in covering the federal policy process for professionals who need to know. For nearly 40 years, IWP has served these policy professionals with cutting-edge information about federal directions.

Our team of health-policy reporters has become a leading source for the latest news on the coronavirus, what steps are being taken to mitigate the pandemic, what policy changes it will produce and  how it will impact future decision-making. The is on top of an array of other issues -- ranging from the cost of prescription drugs to dealing with the opioid crisis – that, even before the pandemic, had created a full federal policy agenda. And the future of Obamacare itself could still be up for grabs.. The reporting opportunity, in this unprecedented time, seems limitless.

IWP’s Health Policy Group ( and four newsletters) is part of a newsroom with 50 reporters and editors renowned for their investigative reporting, taking our readers inside the places (Congress, the White House, the agencies) where the policies are shaped. Our editorial team of enterprise reporters has a worldwide reputation for accurate, in-depth, behind-the-scenes reporting, singularly focused on breaking the big story for policy professionals who depend on us for the “inside” word. Besides health policy, we cover environment, international trade, defense and cybersecurity.

We welcome experience but do not require it.

If you are looking for your next reporting challenge or your first reporting opportunity, contact us. You can share in the excitement of covering the massive changes transforming federal policies, during this unprecedented time with its unprecedented activity.

Start the process by sending a substantive cover letter and resume to Describe your interest, background and career goals.
