ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR

Jeff is a Fellowship-trained manipulative physiotherapist with more than 25 years of private practice experience in both the US and Canada. In 2014 he qualified as Edmonton’s first CPA-certified Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist (MSK). Over 20 years as both a Clinical Lecturer and a Clinical Assistant Professor with the University of Alberta, he has mentored numerous PT students and has developed a variety of teaching tools to help clinicians quickly advance from novice to expert practice.

 

Having hired many PTs over 16 years as a clinic owner, Jeff observed the need for advanced post-graduate mentorship for new graduates entering private practice - something to bridge the gap between clinical practicums and successful solo practice. To satisfy this need, the Fellowship Program began in 2014 and has graduated numerous Fellows to date. In addition to his role as Chief Instructor for the Guild, Jeff oversees the satellite campuses and maintains a busy private practice.

Jeff teaches the 3 online webinars, and all 16 in-person sessions in Edmonton.
