Please note: Dr. Laupacis is not taking any summer students in 2019.

I have a longstanding and broad interest in clinical epidemiology,  health services research, health policy and (most recently) patient involvement in research and health care. I am editor of Healthy Debate, a website about health care, and have started a photo journalism website called Faces of Health Care.
