Cindy McIntyre worked for the Medical Research Council during her early career where she gained a MPhil, before retraining as an Osteopath. She qualified from the British School of Osteopathy (BSO, now the University College of Osteopathy, UCO) in 2000, continuing to teach, and examine at the BSO for over 15 years. Cindy still continues to practice as osteopathic clinician but gained her Professional Doctorate in 2016 with an innovative piece of research on clinical reasoning, perceptual diagnostic judgments, metacognition and reflective practice. She has presented her research at various conferences and has run several short CPD courses on reflective practice. Cindy is an honorary research fellow at UCO and has published her work in peer reviewed journals.
