Amy Pasternak earned her PharmD from the Raabe College of Pharmacy at Ohio Northern University. She completed a PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Residency at Cleveland Clinic Hillcrest Hospital, a PGY2 residency in Clinical Pharmacogenetics at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and the Clinical Pharmacy and Translational Science Fellowship at the University of Michigan College of Pharmacy. She is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the UMCOP and a clinical pharmacist in pharmacogenetics at Michigan Medicine.

Her clinical practice is focused on the implementation of pharmacogenetics into the Michigan Medicine medical record and she works closely with the Department of Pharmacy, University of Michigan Precision Health Initiative, and other genetics specialists to advance these efforts. Examples of implemented or ongoing projects include the deployment of advisory alerts to identify high-risk prescriptions based on a genetic result, monitoring of duplicate pharmacogenetic testing to decrease testing costs, and establishing institutional guidance for medications with recommendations for pharmacogenetic testing. She is also working to establish a pharmacogenetics clinic to increase accessibility of result interpretation for patients and providers.
