Biography summary

Dr Stephen Gill is a Senior Research Fellow with the Barwon Centre for Orthopaedic Research and Education (B-CORE) and a senior clinician physiotherapist with Barwon Health.

Stephen obtained his PhD from La Trobe University in 2009 by investigating exercise-based interventions for people awaiting joint replacement surgery. Following his PhD, Stephen's postdoctoral research program has predominantly involved clinical and health services research.

Stephen commenced with B-CORE in 2017, and together with Professor Richard Page, develops and implements B-CORE's research program which involves 'bench top to bedside' investigation of a broad range of musculoskeletal health conditions and treatments.

Stephen continues to work as a senior clinician physiotherapist in Barwon Health's Emergency Department and Orthopaedic Outpatient Service.
