Marie Gojmerac


Dr. Gojmerac is a fourth year Psychiatry Resident at Kingston General Hospital, who obtained her undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences with a minor in Latin as well as her MD from the University of Alberta. She is currently completing an MA in philosophy through the Clinician Investigator Program, which allows her to continue some clinical work during her studies. She was recently elected chair of the section on philosophy and history of psychiatry of the Canadian Psychiatric Association. Dr. Gojmerac's research interests extend from the epistemic difficulties within psychiatry and embodied cognition, to determinants of aggression in acute care. She is invested in translating knowledge between philosophy and psychiatry. Work in this area includes her past presentations at the Canadian Psychiatric Association Conference in 2018 and 2019, as well as grand rounds reviewing Mona Gupta’s “Is Evidence Based Psychiatry Ethical” and Sergio Sismondo’s “Ghost Managed Medicine: Big Pharma’s Invisible Hand.” Other research presentations include the Queen’s Department of Psychiatry Research Day and the Clinician Investigator Program Research Day. Dr. Gojmerac does her best to be a good physician, but wonders what it means to be so in the current dialogue between the psychiatric profession and social understandings of wellness.
