Curtis May

MD Student


Faculty of Medicine

University of British Columbia

To date, I have participated in practice-based research and quality improvement in the context of a chronic pain clinic, with a focus on descriptive study of demographics and the social determinants of health in practice populations. I have also participated in systematic reviews to assess efficacy of therapies for chronic pain.

As a medical student, my research interests are quite broad but include epidemiology and population health, health services research including ways to improve efficacy and delivery of chronic pain care, social determinants of health and their interaction with treatment outcomes, practice-based research and quality improvement, as well as clinical evaluation of treatment efficacy.

Research Keywords: epidemiology, social determinants of health, chronic pain, practice-based research
