Fellow of the Australian College of Physiotherapists

Prize: Fellowship


Longstanding rural clinician and leading researcher at The University of Western Australia’s WA Centre for Rural Health, Dr Ivan Lin, has been named a fellow by the Australian College of Physiotherapists.
The fellowship makes Dr Lin, a long-time Geraldton resident, one of only two specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapists in country Western Australia and the only one based north of Perth.
“I was thrilled to get the news – it was a bit of a nervous wait after sitting the fellowship exams a number of weeks ago,” Dr Lin said. “Being a fellow not only advances my training and qualifications, but it feeds into my research which is wonderful.”
The Australian College of Physiotherapists is the pre-eminent professional body representing specialist physiotherapists in Australasia, with fellowships awarded to those at the pinnacle of their profession.
As well as his role as a senior lecturer at the WA Centre for Rural Health, Dr Lin, who has been a physiotherapist for more than 25 years, practises at the Geraldton Regional Aboriginal Medical Service.
