Antoine Duclos is a professor of public health, who spent most of his professional life in Lyon and Paris plus a postdoctoral fellowship of two years in Boston. His training background is in the field of epidemiology, with methodological skills in data science and health services research. Heading the health data center at the Lyon university hospital, he designed a platform to conduct studies from local and national data warehouses. Pr Duclos works involve improving the care and the organization of public hospitals through the investigation of healthcare professionals’ clinical performance. His primary research interest focuses on measuring, interpreting and reducing variation in surgical outcomes, including the development of valid indicators as well as innovative graphic tools to guide surgical teams towards a better understanding of their performance. Supported by the achievement of a European Research Council Starting Grant, another main research focus involves exploring the performance curve of surgeons during their career with the expectation to identify human and organizational factors that improve surgical safety and efficiency.
