Christina Polomoff

Assistant Clinical Professor of Pharmacy Practice, University of Connecticut

I am a Population Health Clinical Pharmacist at Hartford HealthCare Integrated Care Partners where I manage the complex pharmacy care needs of high-risk patients, and implement population health management strategies that focus on medication-related performance metrics for the clinically integrated network.

I am also an Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of Connecticut School of Pharmacy where I serve as the faculty advisor for the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy chapter, and as a core faculty member for the Leaders Track program. I co-chair the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP) National Medication Safety During Transitions of Care Committee. I also serve on the Board of Directors for the ASCP Connecticut Chapter and the Connecticut Pharmacist Association, and hold an appointment on the State of Connecticut Department of Development Services Institutional Review Board.

I graduated from the University of Connecticut with a Doctor of Pharmacy and Business Minor. I completed a PGY1 residency at the VA Connecticut Healthcare System followed by a PGY2 ambulatory care residency at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. I hold dual board certifications in ambulatory care and geriatrics.
