Amy Phillips is a candidate for the Master of Public Affairs (DC Concentration) at the LBJ School. She graduated with honors in medical anthropology as an undergraduate at the University of Pennsylvania. She is specifically interested in health policy, particularly in the context of health care reform. In the five years prior to graduate school, Phillips worked at the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) and at Arnold Ventures (AV), which developed her skills and interest in health policy, especially as it relates to payment and delivery reform and enabled her to develop her management skills as health care chief of staff at AV. Her specific policy interests are health care reform, health care advocacy, and the influence of special interests in the policy making process.

Phillips hopes to find a Policy Apprenticeship in DC working with the U.S. Congress, an executive branch agency such as OMB, or a small health care strategy firm.

Policy interests: Health care reform, voter and clinician perspectives, special interest influence
