Tori Bahr MD

Associate Medical Director of Pediatrics, Gillette Children’s Hospital, St. Paul, MN

Tori Bahr, MD is a MedPeds Complex Care Physician passionate about transforming the way we approach the transition of young adults with childhood onset conditions. This interest started prior to medical school when she was a PCA for a young woman with muscular dystrophy and grew during medical school and residency as she witnessed the universal difficulties young people, their families, and their healthcare team were having during this important time. She has been fortunate to create a niche at Gillette Children's working alongside an incredible multi-disciplinary team to advance the transition of young adults with medical complexity. She is motivated to support healthcare providers and systems to develop creative solutions for their patients and systems through education to local residents, practicing providers through a Transition ECHO project, local CME events, and in real time while talking through cases with colleagues. Her patients and their families are her mentors and keep her energized to advocate for equitable and just care throughout the transition to adulthood.
