Stephanie Lurch (she/her), BScPT, MEd

Stephanie is a contemporary physiotherapist and educator who resists the traditional, and in doing so stimulates critical thinking. She has been an educator, clinician, advocate, storyteller, and humanitarian for over 20 years.

Aiming to bridge the gap between academia and practice, Stephanie has worked across multiple settings in the healthcare and education sectors, leveraging her Master of Education and Bachelor of Physical Therapy degrees, both from the University of Toronto. Within the Department Stephanie is the Academic Lead in the MScPT for Equity, Anti-racism and Social accountability, co-develops and delivers the SPEC (social, political, economic, cultural) curriculum, and is a member of the Diversity Advisory Council at Temerty Faculty of Medicine. In addition, Stephanie teaches paediatrics and neuroscience for the Ontario Internationally Educated Bridging Program (OIEPB) and MScPT Program. Stephanie practices as a paediatric physiotherapist in the community.
