Karl Granskog, Doctor of Pharmacy, is NVRH's Ambulatory Care Pharmacist

Monday, October 24, 2016

Karl Granskog, Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) is Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital’s new Outpatient Ambulatory Care Pharmacist.
Karl is joining the behavioral health specialists, care coordinators, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physicians care teams at Corner Medical and Kingdom Internal Medicine. His responsibilities at these practices include the provision of pharmaceutical care, medication management, population-level medication assessment, and the development strategic partnerships within NVRH and the community.
Karl received his BSc in Chemistry from the University of Michigan, his BS in Pharmacy Studies, summa cum laude from the University of Connecticut, and a MA in Biology from Brown University. He earned his Doctor of Pharmacy at the University of Connecticut, and completed an Ambulatory Care Residency through the University of Minnesota at St. Gabriel Hospital’s outpatient medical center. He received a certificate in pain management from the University of Southern Illinois.  
Prior to completing his Doctor of Pharmacy, he spent thirteen years at Pfizer as a medicinal chemist. His initial focus was the development of new medicines for the treatment of asthma and COPD. He subsequently transferred to Pfizer’s antibacterial department where he focused on natural product (compounds isolated from microorganisms and plants) semisynthesis for the treatment of community acquired pneumonia. “It was a great experience, and a great opportunity to work with and learn from some of the world’s best medicinal chemists,” says Karl.
Mike Auger, Director of the Pharmacy at NVRH is very happy about Karl’s arrival. “Karl is a great addition. I’m pleased to have someone of Karl’s caliber working with the patients and providers. He sincerely enjoys what he does and wants to make a difference in the lives of our patients.”
Dr. Sullivan, Medical Director at Corner Medical states, “Karl is a welcome addition to our provider staff at Corner Medical. He has a depth and breadth of knowledge regarding both pharmacy and nutrition which have complemented many clinicians' abilities. He is enthusiastic and always willing to help with those patients who are complex and challenging. We are pleased to be able to collaborate with him and expect that patient care will benefit from his expertise.”

Karl has a strong interest in the interface between herbal medications (Ayurvedic, Traditional Chinese, and Western), modern pharmaceuticals, and nutrition. He is a strong believer in good nutrition as an essential pillar for good health. Karl shares that there is much to learn about herbal medications. He states, “My goal is to ensure patient safety, and then expand into a deeper understanding of their efficacy and utility.” These interests have translated into early participation in the evaluation of mixed herbal-medication regimens and the treatment of chronic disease states such as COPD, diabetes, and obesity at the practices.
Karl states, “NVRH has afforded me an enormous opportunity to participate in patient’s overall healthcare and wellness. The physicians and providers have a wealth of knowledge, and partnering with them in the care of patients is a great feeling. I’m very excited and grateful for this opportunity.”
Karl and his wife Helen have two daughters, Alexandra and Evelyn. He enjoys time with his family, as well as, gardening, reading, and woodworking.
