STAT, a leading health and medicine publication, is looking for an energetic, versatile, and hard-charging reporter to join our Washington D.C. bureau. The ideal candidate will have experience as a beat reporter or equivalent experience covering health-related political stories. Reporting background in any of these areas is a plus: Congress, the White House, the FDA, HHS, hospitals or health tech. STAT covers a range of issues debated in D.C., with a particular emphasis on the government’s response to Covid-19, of course, as well as drug pricing reform, biomedical research funding and regulation, public health policymaking, and the health sector’s influence in Washington. We're looking for a reporter who can break news and deliver quick-turn analyses, including for our subscription offering, STAT Plus, but also conceive of and execute illuminating, provocative and unexpected enterprise stories. Our Washington reporters make up a small but close-knit team that stands out for impactful exclusives.
