Profile

Dr. Michelle Kho is an Assistant Professor in the School of Rehabilitation Science at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. As a clinician-scientist, she also cares for patients in the St. Joseph’s Healthcare ICU in Hamilton. She holds a Tier II Canada Research Chair in Critical Care Rehabilitation and Knowledge Translation.

Dr. Kho is leading a clinical research program of very early in-bed cycling in mechanically ventilated patients to improve patient outcomes. Her research interests include novel early rehabilitation strategies to reduce weakness in ICU patients, knowledge translation, research methodology (systematic reviews, practice guidelines), and health services and outcomes research. She is also an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD.
