Dr. Guirguis-Blake works alongside each senior resident for the entire third year to complete their scholarly projects. Every month, we set aside on-the-clock time to polish a clinical question, search and appraise the literature, prepare a manuscript for publication, and deliver an evidence-based grand rounds presentation on the topic. All of our residents are primary authors on their publications which span topics including pediatric, maternity, mental health, and geriatric care. Some recent topics have included: the effectiveness of nicotine replacement therapy for smoking cessation in pregnancy, aerobic exercise for fibromyalgia pain, and antidepressant therapy for treatment-resistant depression.
