What You'll Learn

Comprehensive Medication Management (CMM)

CMM is a whole-person approach that considers more than just a patient's medication list. A CMM effort focuses on the patient and the clinical and personal goals of therapy, rather than relying solely on the knowledge of the currently prescribed medications as a baseline for interventions. Design safe and effective patient-centered therapeutic regimens and monitoring plans to achieve treatment goals and improve patient health outcomes.

Transitional Care Management (TCM)

TCM addresses the hand-off period between episodes of care. After a hospitalization or other inpatient facility stay (e.g., in a skilled nursing facility), the patient may be dealing with a medical crisis, new diagnosis, or change in medication therapy. You’ll learn where pharmacists fit into this crucial moment and the value they provide in reducing medication errors and improving patient health outcomes.

Research / Clinical Service Development

Work with a team of experts to develop, implement, and assess a new clinical pharmacy service to enhance patient care.

Clinical Operations / Practice Management

Manage the operations of the clinic and contribute in strategic planning for optimizing practice management.

Off-site Ambulatory Care Clinic

Engage in patient care activities in a traditional ambulatory care setting focusing on chronic disease state management.

Elective Study

We offer a variety of unique elective rotations in areas such as clinical quality, data analytics, product, design, commercial & marketing, and strategy

Meet Our Team

Priyasha Sarna

It's very rewarding to be a part of the journey, growth, and development of a pharmacist. Pharmacy is a profession where you don't ever stop learning. In my career, I've always found that as I've precepted students and residents, you learn as much from them as they learn from you.

Priyasha Sarna, PharmD, BCPS, CDCES, Director, Residency Program
Zarah Mayewski

When I think about why I became a pharmacist, the reason I'm here is that there are real-life consequences for not balancing the patient's medication equation and I love being able to help find that balance for patients.

Zarah Mayewski, PharmD, BCPPS, Vice President, Cureatr Clinic
TramThai

I love to empower my patients with information to help them better understand their medications and how the medications benefit them or work with their disease states. There's nothing better than hearing patients, say, "Wow, no one ever told me that before. Now it makes sense why I need to take this medication.

Tram Thai, PharmD, BCACP, AE-C, Director, Clinical Pharmacy Services
Tatiana Wright

What Cureatr is doing is the future of pharmacy and healthcare. I am part of an incredible healthcare team. We are delivering patient-specific care and having a tremendous impact on patients' lives. We are empowering patients through knowledge and understanding.

Tatiana Wright, PharmD, Director, Clinical Pharmacy Services
Meghan Smart

What I love most about being a pharmacist is how accessible we are to patients. Pharmacists are in a unique position because we're easy for patients to get to and we have expertise about their medications and payment plans.

Meghan Smart, PharmD, BCMTMS, INHC, RYT, Clinical Pharmacist
Vidhi Patel

My favorite part about working with both students and residents is the moment/clinical scenario where they realize their true potential. The confidence they gain, which translates into phenomenal patient care, is very rewarding to see.

Vidhi Patel, Clinical Pharmacist
Aaron Adams

As a pharmacist, I have always admired the role that we play in healthcare. We are often the healthcare professional who has the ability to impact patient care the most given our ease of accessibility to patients. Knowing this, I love any opportunity to help train new and inspiring pharmacists. Being able to precept residents and pharmacy interns and help develop the skills that will be used to help so many other patients is something I take pride in.

Aaron Adams, Clinical Pharmacist
