Personal profile


Dr Jay Ebert completed his PhD in cartilage repair, biomechanics and exercise rehabilitation at the University of Western Australia (UWA) in 2008, for which he was awarded the Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA) Medal. Since this time, he has been involved academically at the School of Human Sciences within UWA, and is now a Lecturer and Researcher in musculoskeletal rehabilitation. Through his clinical and research work at UWA, he has been (and continues to be) involved in the project development and coordination of several large orthopaedic research programs, as well as student research supervision.

External to UWA, he is a Director of Research at the Perth Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Research Institute, and a Director of the Orthopaedic Research Foundation of Western Australia. He is also a Director and Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) at HFRC, a leading exercise rehabilitation clinic with a focus in muscluoskeletal and orthopaedic rehabilitation, located in Perth, Western Australia. He has practiced as an AEP since 2002, and was awarded the Exercise and Sport Science Australia (ESSA) ‘Exercise Physiologist of the Year’ in 2010. He has extensive experience working with patients of all musculoskeletal conditions, with a particular focus on lower limb injury and post-operative rehabilitation following orthopaedic surgery.
