Cecilia Guthrie, MD


I was born and bred in Oklahoma City.  I am a “Cowboy” at heart as I attended Oklahoma State University for my undergraduate.  Go Pokes!  I attended medical school at OU and decided during that time that I liked kids better than adults.  I completed my pediatric residency and pediatric emergency medicine fellowship at the University of Texas-Southwestern in Dallas.  I joined the pediatric emergency medicine section at Emory University and lived in Atlanta for 9 years.  I then made  a U turn back to Oklahoma.  I joined an emergency medicine group at St. Francis hospital in Tulsa to help open a new pediatric emergency department.  Missing the academic setting, I returned to the OU Health Science Center in 2011.  The Children’s Hospital emergency department is my home away from home.


My early interest in research was the inflammatory response in respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) bronchiolitis.  Recently delving back into research, my interest has been in acute migraine treatment for children in the emergency department.  Other areas of special interest include asthma and anaphylaxis.


On a more personal note, I have been married for 18 years to a great guy who waited for me as I went through all my training.  We have no children, but puppies will be added to the family when our house remodel is finished.  I consider my children to be the kids I see in the emergency department every day.  Hobbies include reading, singing, playing the violin and aviation.
