Jean-Francois Esculier

PT, PhD, Sport Physiotherapy Certificate Kelowna, Canada

As a physiotherapist since 2009, Jean-Francois Esculier is driven by a willingness to improve care in rehabilitation and sports medicine. He converted to being a clinician-researcher early in his career, and is now living in beautiful British Columbia to combine his passions: knowledge translation and transfer as well as teaching with The Running Clinic, clinical practice with his mobile physiotherapy clinic (MoveMed Physiotherapy), and research with his Clinical Assistant Professor position in the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of British Columbia. JF is a recreational runner who enjoys running for fun and health, and to discover the world around him.
