Bio

A native of Montreal, Dr. Paul LeLorier completed his medical school training at McGill University before going to Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri for his Internal Medicine Residency. He then completed a fellowship in Cardiovascular Diseases at the University of Chicago and a fellowship in Electrophysiology (EP) at the London Health Sciences Centre, in London, Ontario, Canada. He joined the faculty at the Boston University School of Medicine in 2001 where he served as Director of the EP Training Program and the Syncope Evaluation Center and won numerous teaching awards from students and fellows. He is board certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular medicine, and electrophysiology.
