Dr. Garrett Bullock is currently reading for a DPhil in Musculoskeletal Sciences: Biomedical Data Science as an Oxford Clarendon Scholar, funded by The Oxford University Press. His research focus is on developing prediction models to identify injury risk factors for overhead athletes, and the role of physical activity and sport on musculoskeletal health and quality of life. He is currently investigating the relationship between persistent joint pain, physical activity, and health related quality of life in cricketers, and the long-term health effects of playing baseball.
Garrett graduated from Wake Forest University with a bachelor's degree in history, where he was a captain and a four-year letter winner in baseball. Garrett went on to play five years of professional baseball in the Houston Astros Organisation where he was a member of the 2010 New York Penn League Champions.
Following retirement, Garrett graduated from Duke University with a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. While at Duke, he was class president, faculty liaison, and voted by the faculty to be the representative degree marshall. Furthermore, he co-founded two student groups, Rehab 2 Performance and the Medical Advocacy Student Interest Group.
Garrett's professional experiences involve practicing sports and orthopaedic physical therapy, consulting for the professional and collegiate sport industry, and serving as a clinical instructor for physical therapists and athletic trainers. In addition to his professional responsibilities, Garrett volunteers as a sports medicine provider in rural areas.
Garrett has been sought as a featured key note speaker, made multiple presentations at national and international research conferences, and published numerous scientific articles.
