Personal profile


Andrew is a Senior Lecturer in Physiotherapy, joining Coventry University in 2003. He has responsibilities and interests in research ethics, teaching academic writing, and guidance for international students. He leads the Physiotherapy BSc final project module and a Masters module in Advancing Neurological Physiotherapy. He is currently Chair of the Health and Life Sciences Faculty Ethics and Governance Committee.

Andrew's clinical background was mainly in neurological physiotherapy, working with people after stroke or traumatic brain injury. During his 15 years of clinical experience in the NHS, he developed particular expertise in vestibular rehabilitation and long-term support for people with Multiple Sclerosis. 

Before training as a chartered physiotherapist in Birmingham, Andrew read Modern History at Oxford University, and his D.Phil. thesis was on public finances in later medieval Norwich.

Research Interests

Andrew is particularly interested in the use of 'Illness Narratives' in health education, using published experiences of illness to give clinicians and others glimpses of the 'survivor' perspective. To that end he has developed a website populated with his reviews of published 'illness narratives'. The website is called 'Stories of Experience, Illness and Recovery', viewable at andrewking.coventry.domains . 

Research Interests

Skill acquisition; Hydrotherapy; Vestibular rehabilitation; Illness narratives; Gait analysis

Andrew is part of a CU team working on a project for CHEA. The project investigates the global role (and concerns) of Quality Assurance bodies in combatting corruption in HE, using an on-line survey and interviews.
