There are currently a number of opportunities to engage in high quality research projects within the Musculoskeletal Division of The George Institute for Global Health based in Sydney, Australia. The Division runs research projects across different streams: low back pain (Professor Chris Maher), ageing (Associate Professor Cathie Sherrington) and indigenous health (Associate Professor Jane Latimer). The breadth of research projects covers primary care research, falls prevention and rehabilitation, musculoskeletal complications after neurological disease, paediatrics and sports injury. Our aim is to develop and rigorously evaluate new approaches to the primary care management of musculoskeletal conditions, while promoting innovation and an interdisciplinary approach. The Division also hosts the Centre for Evidence-Based Physiotherapy and The Physiotherapy Evidence Database (PEDro). PEDro was established in 1999 to give immediate access to high quality clinical research about the effects of physiotherapy treatments.
With research hubs based in four countries, The George Institute for Global Health’ s mission is to improve the health of millions of people worldwide. The Institute was ranked #1 research institution in the world for scientific impact by the SCImago Institutions Ranking (SIR) World Report 2011.
