Unique Health Policy

Karl Tigges

Army Combat Veteran

Washington, D.C. offers unique opportunities in health policy, unavailable

elsewhere. Living and working “inside the beltway” can be challenging, but

extremely rewarding. One of the hottest job markets, not only for traditional health

professions (physicians, pharmacists, and bench scientists), this city may be perfect

for those interested in taking less traditional health career paths. Many Washington

organizations—governmental, non-profits, industry, media, and think tanks—

have public health or health policy positions available. Government positions

are available in health policy, as well as supporting contracting and consulting

roles. House and Senate hearings are open to the public along with free events

involving high-level officials. In this session, students will learn about networking,

negotiating, and finding the best work-life balance to not only improve the health

of others, but also support personal health.
