Polina Lipnik joined Children's of Minnesota in 2000. She is a 2005 graduate of Drake University.

She started at Children's - Minneapolis as a technician and intern, and then transitioned to Children's - St. Paul as a resident, and then came back to Children's - Minneapolis as a staff pharmacist for 1 year. In July 2007, she became the primary pharmacist for the Intermediate Care Unit.

"What I like about Children's," says Polina "is that every day you come to work you feel as though you can make a difference in each patients' life. Whether its adjusting a dose based on kinetics, based to renal/hepatic function, or just working with the healthcare team to determine the best therapy for each patient."

In addition to Children's, Polina has worked at Mercy Hospital in Des Moines and at Walgreens.
