  • Teaching & Learning

Janis qualified as a physiotherapist from Queen Margaret University College in 1997.  She completed junior rotations in Newcastle before working as a senior physiotherapist in NHS Fife. It was there that she established a clinical interest in respiratory care, specifically within critical care.  In 2001, Janis was appointed into a highly specialised physiotherapist and team leader post within critical care in NHS Lothian where she continues to work clinically.  Working in this post Janis developed a special clinical interest in neuroscience and neurotrauma critical care and began formal education responsibilities. Janis has, and continues to be, involved in physiotherapy undergraduate/pre-registration education, both in the university as an associate lecturer and in the hospital setting as a practice educator.  In 2015 Janis achieved an MSc Physiotherapy (post registration) and was subsequently appointed into a lecturer in physiotherapy post at Queen Margaret University in 2017.  Janis continues to work clinically in NHS Lothian and within QMU where she is involved in delivering the cardiorespiratory module within the Physiotherapy programme.
