On graduating, Matthew worked at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital as a rotational physiotherapist prior to embarking on a working holiday to the United Kingdom and Europe. He worked as a senior physiotherapist at various hospitals in London in the areas of orthopaedics, intensive care, geriatrics, and cardiorespiratory rehabilitation. On returning from the United Kingdom, Matthew returned to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, providing clinical education to undergraduate students in orthopaedics, intensive care, and slow stream rehabilitation.

We welcomed Matthew to the Active Rehab team in 2015, where he works as a senior Orthopaedic Physio in the MPH and BPH.
