Euson is a physical therapist with substantive clinical experience in the area of musculoskeletal practice, both in acute care and in community practice settings.  Upon graduating from Queen’s University with a bachelor degree in Physical Therapy, he pursued advanced training in orthopaedics and became a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manual Physical Therapists (FCAMPT).  His deep interest in physical therapy education led him to complete a Master’s degree in Education (Adult Education) and a doctorate in health professions education at the University of Toronto.  Euson has received multiple awards recognizing excellence in education and mentorship including: the Department of PT Exceptional Achievement award (Education, Practitioner), University of Toronto Wightman-Berris Academy Individual Teaching award, and the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA) Mentorship award.  As an active member of the the Orthopaedic Division of the CPA, Euson served as Credentials Chair for the Education Committee to oversee course instructors within the national orthopaedic post-graduate curriculum.  Currently, he is a member of the Standards Committee of the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists (IFOMPT) working to foster excellence in curriculum standards amongst post-graduate programs worldwide.

Research & Scholarly Activities

Euson has a deep interest in exploring how physical therapy education can best prepare learners for significant impact in today’s health care environment.  His education scholarship centres around the pursuit of critical thinking and resilience in the face of the evolving challenges within the health care system.  Drawing on his experience with renewing and designing curricula, his research explores the philosophies of education we have adopted, our current education practices, and tensions that can emerge as a result of misalignments between the two.  His scholarly work not only informs his teaching practices but also plays a critical role in developing faculty development initiatives to support other educators in the health professions.


Euson is responsible for designing, co-coordinating and teaching Physical Therapy Practice IV (PHT 1110Y) in the MScPT program in the Department of Physical Therapy, a course which builds on students’ foundational knowledge and skills in promoting musculoskeletal health. As a faculty advisor for MScPT research projects, Euson is involved in PHT 1107H and PHT 1113Y.  He also leads workshops on assessment and course design for faculty in the health professions, through the Centre for Faculty Development and the Canadian Physiotherapy Association.
