Dr. Gordon Jewett studied software engineering before completing his medical school at the University of Calgary in 2016. He became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada in 2021 after completing his adult neurology residency in Calgary. As a resident he was inspired by the complexity of the peripheral nervous system and the challenges in diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disease.

He is currently completing a 2-year clinical and research fellowship in neuromuscular neurology with the strong clinical group at the University of Calgary. His research work will include completion of a master of neuroscience supervised by Dr. Lawrence Korngut and Dr. Joon Lee. His thesis is focused on development of novel disease biomarkers in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), based on wearable sensors and machine learning. His research is generously funded by ALS Canada and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).

At every opportunity he escapes the city to explore the Rocky Mountains by ski, foot or bike with his two young daughters and partner.
