Dr. Michel Labrecque MD PhD (epidemiology) is an emeritus professor from the Department of Family and Emergency Medicine at Laval University, Quebec City, Canada. He is an associated clinical researcher at the CHU de Québec-Laval University Research Centre and at the Centre de recherche sur les soins et les services de première ligne de l’Université Laval (CERSSPL-UL). His academic activities have always shown a constant concern to assess promising clinical approaches and integrate them into practice.

Over the years, his research activities have focused on knowledge translation strategies to improve medical practice through shared decision-making and information technology, and female and male reproductive health. He received the Family Medicine Researcher of the Year national award in 2014 and was recognized as one of the Top 20 Pioneers of Family Medicine Research in Canada in 2015.

Recently retired from family practice, he now focuses his clinical and research activities to the practice and teaching of the vasectomy technique. Thanks to the Fonds Michel-Labrecque en santé reproductive masculine from the Laval University Fondation, he is actively involved in supporting training and research initiatives for vasectomy programs from developing countries.
