Medication Management Clinics

Specialty medications are complex medications that require special care and monitoring. Yale New Haven Health Medication Management Clinics are staffed with clinical pharmacists with advanced training who partner with your doctor as part of the care team to optimize your medications.

When your doctor refers you to the Medication Management Clinic, one of our pharmacy technicians will call you to schedule an appointment with the pharmacist.

 

Why should I meet with a Medication Management clinical pharmacist?

If you are prescribed a new medication, your pharmacist will review required lab tests to make sure the medication is safe for you, and check for any drug interactions.


If you are prescribed a medication injection, we provide injection training where we walk you through your first injection step-by-step to make sure you are comfortable using your medication.


The pharmacist will go over important information about your medication: how you should take it, possible side effects, and what you should do if you miss a dose. The pharmacist will also answer any questions you may have.


Your clinical pharmacist will follow up with you and your doctor to ensure your medication is working well for you.


If you are due for a routine vaccine, you can receive it within our clinic during your regularly scheduled in-person appointment.


Your clinical pharmacist also has access to your health record and can provide personalized care alongside your doctor and community pharmacist.

Appointment information

The clinical pharmacist can meet with you in-person, by telephone, or by video visit.


The goal of your first meeting with the pharmacist is to understand your symptoms, treatments you may have tried in the past, preventative care like vaccinations, and your health goals. You can prepare for your visit by:

  • Creating a list of questions to ask the pharmacist
  • Having your medication list, bottles, or pillbox available during your visit

How do I contact the pharmacist?

Call your clinic’s main telephone number and speak with a staff member if you would like to meet with the pharmacist or if you have questions.
