Rick Glazier




I am a Scientist in MAP Centre for Urban Health Solutions at St. Michael’s Hospital and a family physician with public health and epidemiology training. My primary research interests are the delivery of primary health care services (including an examination of primary care reform models); equity in health care delivery for disadvantaged urban populations; and the application of geographic methods in health research. My roles as a Scientist, family physician and Senior Scientist and Chair of the Primary Care and Population Health Program at the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES), bring a wealth of information and research collaboration to the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute of St. Michael’s Hospital.

Please note: Dr. Glazier is not taking any summer students.
