Professor Meg Stuart
I commenced my academic career at Cumberland College of Health Sciences, now the University of Sydney, in 1986, teaching pre-clinical sciences to a broad range of undergraduate and postgraduate health science students. The majority of my teaching load has been in functional musculoskeletal anatomy and neuroscience.
In 2006 I moved from academia to a management role at the National Prescribing Service (NPS) where I oversaw the development and implementation of resources designed to facilitate skills in quality use of medicines and good prescribing. At NPS, I managed a team of educational designers and training professionals and was a member of the organisation's Senior Management Group.
In 2009 I joined ACU in the newly established School of Physiotherapy. I moved to the School of Science as it was established in January, 2014 and then to the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedicine in 2018. In 2019 I joined the Learning and Teaching Centre as Director.
My first qualification was in physiotherapy, I  practiced in a large teaching hospital in Sydney's inner western suburbs. My post-graduate qualifications are in neurophysiology and in education.
