Research Profile

Joseph McVeigh

Biography

Dr McVeigh is a Senior Lecturer and Head of Discipline of Physiotherapy in the School of Clinical Therapies. Before joining UCC Dr McVeigh was a member of faculty at Ulster University where he was Course Director of the BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy and the MSc Sport and Exercise Medicine programmes. Dr McVeigh obtained a BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy from Ulster University in 1992. He was employed in the NHS as a staff grade then senior physiotherapist before specialising in the rehabilitation of long-term musculoskeletal conditions. In 1999 Dr McVeigh was appointed to one of the first joint clinical-academic posts in physiotherapy in the North of Ireland. Dr McVeigh was subsequently appointed as a Lecturer in Physiotherapy at Ulster University in 2003. Dr McVeigh was awarded a Fellowship (2013) and Senior Fellowship (2016) of the Higher Education Academy and has acted as External Examiner at St George’s University of London and is currently External Examiner for the MSc (pre-registration) Physiotherapy programme at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Research Interests

Dr McVeigh was awarded his PhD, ‘Physiotherapy Management of Fibromyalgia Syndrome’ in 2007, and while he maintains his research interest in chronic pain, his area of research has expanded to include non-pharmacological interventions, in particular physical activity and self-management, in long-term conditions. Dr McVeigh is keen to support emerging researchers in physiotherapy. He has supervised 3 PhD students to completion and is currently supervising 6 PhD students. He has been an invited PhD External Examiner for PhD students in the University of Seville and the University of Granada, Spain, the University of Stellenbosch University, South Africa, Keele University and Northumbria University in the UK. Dr McVeigh was Editor-in-Chief of Physiotherapy Practice and Research, the Journal of the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists (2008 – 2019) and is a Founding Editorial Board Member and Section Editor of Archives of Rehabilitation Research and Clinical Translation, an official journal of the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine. He is also a member of The International Society of Physiotherapy Journal Editors.
