MD, University of Minnesota Medical School

University of Minnesota Psychiatry Residency

BA, University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI

Summary

I received my BS in psychology and neurobiology from the University of Wisconsin. I completed medical school and Psychiatry residency at the University of Minnesota Medical School.

I am an adult outpatient psychiatrist with a clinical focus in integrated/collaborative care, which involves working closely with colleagues in primary care to help provide mental health care to a vastly greater number of patients than is possible with a conventional outpatient psychiatry practice. I believe that the integration of behavioral health with primary care is key to improving access and is the future of effective mental health treatment.

Aside from my work with patients, I enjoy work in clinical informatics. I am a certified physician builder and power user with Epic, helping to make improvements to the electronic medical record to streamline the experience for both providers and patients, and reduce burnout among providers.

I am also passionate about education and work closely with medical students and residents in psychiatry as well as primary care specialties to help them improve their clinical skills and provide excellent patient centered mental health care.

Expertise

Dr. Vallera specializes in the development of clinical care models in the area of Integrated Care / Collaborative Care. He is also interested in clinical informatics and resident education, and maintains certifications to optimize the electronic medical record in the interest of reducing burnout among providers.
