Claire Lidstone

Lecturer CQMU and University of Leicester Joint Partnership Musculoskeletal Lead.


I joined the University of Leicester in 2021 as a lecturer at the College of Life Sciences and Leicester Medical School following 22 years in clinical practice as a physiotherapist. Clinical education has been at the forefront of my practice leading to a PGcert in Healthcare with facilitating education in the workplace as the focus. Further studies led to a MaEd with proficiency in SEND to explore sensory motor function and the implications for learning. I have particular interest in musculoskeletal clinical application of anatomy and neuroanatomy alongside sensory motor development.
