A major theme of Dr. Gören’s career in healthcare has been to ensure patients with serious mental illness are treated in the safest and most efficacious manner. She has worked with retrospective prescribing data to assess antipsychotic utilization and outcomes and developed and implemented quality improvement programs to improve the care of patients with serious mental illness. Dr. Gören maintains a clinical psychiatric practice on both inpatient and outpatient services.
