BERMUDA RUN, NC, October 05, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Caryl Guth, MD, with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Dr. Guth celebrates many years' experience in her professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes she has accrued in her field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
A retired integrative medicine specialist and anesthesiologist, Dr. Guth spent more than 40 years dedicated to helping patients. Making the decision to pursue anesthesiology, her nearest option to surgery as women weren't often selected for surgical residency programs at that time, after many years of study, she eventually found herself enveloped in the study of pain management. Before retirement, she assisted in forming a pain clinic at her hospital after becoming a patient herself, hoping to assist others in learning all about health and integrative medicine.
Most recently, Dr. Guth had chaired the department of anesthesiology at the Mills-Peninsula Hospital System in California, where she first began her career in 1967. Since retiring from practice Dr. Guth has remained active in patient care and advocacy issues, promoting the integration of holistic concepts into teaching and medical practice. With her involvement and through a generous gift in 2002 toward the endowment of the Caryl J Guth, MD Chair for Integrative Medicine, Dr. Guth is honored to be considered the founder of the service. This visionary investment eventually led to the establishment of the Center for Integrative Medicine of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, officially designated in 2009. In 2017 the Integrative Medicine Patient Clinic was established to treat pain patients without opioids and other medical problems without drugs.
Dr. Guth's career history also involved education. She was an instructor at the University of Nijmegan (now known as Radboud University) in the Netherlands, as well as at Bowman Gray School of Medicine. A diplomate of the American Board of Anesthesiology, she was also known for having served on the board of directors for Mills Hospital in San Mateo, CA, and for Mills-Peninsula Health System in Burlingame. She was a member of the board of science and policy advisors for the American Council on Science and Health, and served in numerous roles for organizations, such as the American Medical Association, the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the California Medical Association, the California Society of Anesthesiologists, and the San Mateo County Medical Association.
When Dr. Guth first started out in medicine, she earned an Associate's degree at Mars Hill College and a Bachelor of science at Wake Forest University. By 1962, she had completed an MD, also at Wake Forest, before interning at The University of Kansas Medical Center. From 1963 to 1965, she completed her residency in anesthesiology at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital, followed by postgraduate training in anesthesiology at Queen Victoria Hospital in Sussex, England, and at Stanford University back in the United States.
In 2013, Dr. Guth was honored with a North Carolina Baptist Heritage Award by Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
