MD, Trinity College, Dublin
Bachelor’s Degree, Kinesiology and Exercise Science
John Matheson completed his medical education at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland in 2015 after receiving an undergraduate degree in kinesiology from Acadia University in Canada. He has a keen interest in musculoskeletal health research and, in particular, the applications of additive manufacturing in the reverse engineering of orthopaedic implants. After his experience as an Innovation Fellow at Western University, he hopes to pursue residency training in orthopaedic surgery.
While a Medical Innovation Fellow at Western, Matheson would team up with Lawson’s Dr. Nicholas Power and his peer medical innovation fellows in the Fight Against Cancer Innovation Trust (FACIT)’s annual competition. One invention submitted by the trio would go on to win the $50,000 grand prize, taking both the inaugural Ernsting Entrepreneurship Award and the Audience Choice Award. After the MIF program, John went on to complete his orthopaedics surgery residency and is now an orthopaedic surgeon.
