Why CHRT? CHRT is a collaborative and open work environment, but at the same time individual drive is highly valued. The organization is at the cutting edge of health policy and is often setting the stage for how health care issues and debates play out in the state of Michigan and beyond. The collaborative spirit of CHRT is also evident in the partnerships with many organizations.
Learning environment. CHRT is a great learning environment, in part due to its many connections across sectors (clinical health care delivery, health policy, legislative, community-based organizations, payers). Since CHRT produces issue and policy briefs on so many different topics, staff members have the opportunity to learn about entirely new fields of health care, or to expand and deepen their policy knowledge in a field about which they already know a lot. Staff members have a wide range of experiences, from working with health insurance plans and legislative bodies, to working with state and local agencies and conducting research.
Career support. CHRT provides many professional development opportunities. Staff have access to numerous University of Michigan resources, from writing courses to lean training workshops. Early career professionals have opportunities to receive mentorship in a variety of fields, either through veteran CHRT staff, or through CHRT partnerships.
Policy-relevant work. CHRT’s policy-relevant work is designed to have a direct and timely impact on many pressing health policy issues. This dynamic work is relevant to a broad array of policymakers, stakeholders, and community members.
Work environment. CHRT provides an open, flexible, friendly workplace with committed team-oriented staff. The facilities are located in Ann Arbor, MI – a lively and diverse college town in southeast Michigan.
