Brief Biography

Dr. Gorman joined The Hospital for Sick Children in 2005 as a staff psychiatrist on the Neuropsychiatry Team, and he is also an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto. His clinical and research interests focus on Tourette’s syndrome (TS) and associated disorders, including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Among his current projects is a study of psychosocial outcomes and perinatal risk factors in children with TS or OCD.

Dr. Gorman is active in teaching and supervising medical students, general psychiatry residents, and child psychiatry residents. He has been nominated twice for the Paul Steinhauer Award for Postgraduate Teaching in Child Psychiatry, receiving it in 2006, and he has also been nominated twice for the Robin Hunter Award for Postgraduate Teaching in Psychiatry. A focus of his teaching has been child psychopharmacology, as he developed and directs the Advanced Child Psychopharmacology course that is attended by all University of Toronto psychiatry residents.
