Dr Lyndal Maxwell
I started my physiotherapy career as a clinician initially in rotating positions then specialising in cardiorespiratory physiotherapy, in particular intensive care.
Prior to commencing at ACU I was an academic at the University of Sydney where I taught into undergraduate, graduate-entry and post-graduate programs, and supervised Honours students. I was also a member of the clinical education team for a number of years, managing clinical placements for students.
I commenced at ACU in 2011 and am leading the development and teaching of the cardiorespiratory curriculum.
