Getting off the tools

Meet Jason

USC Exercise Physiology Graduate, founder of Sunshine Coast Rehabilitation and Exercise Physiology.

Jason Welburn

“I was always tossing up the idea of whether to stay in the mines, or to leave and pursue something more academic. I was able to reach out for support from the lecturers and tutors. It was a good set up at USC.”

After playing rugby union overseas, Jason returned to Australia and found work in underground mining. The hot and tough conditions were a strain on him, but a perfect storm of life circumstances and flying out of Kakadu in unbearable heat and rain caused Jason to reconsider his career path. Returning home to the Sunshine Coast, Jason started study at USC and founded Sunshine Coast Rehabilitation and Exercise Physiology where he applies techniques and frameworks he learnt through his studies.
