Terence McSweeney is a graduate of the British College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM) where he attained a Masters in Osteopathy. After qualifying Terence worked in a number of osteopathic clinics in London and was part time lecturer in anatomy and osteopathic technique at the BCOM.

He has since taken on the full-time role of lecturer in osteopathy at Swansea University while also completing a Masters in Clinical Management of Pain at the University of Edinburgh.

At Swansea University Terence primarily lectures anatomy and osteopathic skills, while also tutoring in the student clinic.

His research interest centres on the role of manual therapy in pain management, including complex pain syndromes, headaches and post-operative rehabilitation and pain management.

Terence continues to treat private patients in a small Swansea clinic.

Teaching

  • SHF100 Anatomy and Physiology 2

    This module aims to provide an understanding of the structure and function of the key systems which is a core requirement of osteopathic medicine. This module builds upon knowledge introduced in SHF109 Anatomy and Physiology 1, and develops the understanding of the structure and functions of the key systems of the body. This knowledge will underpin the pathophysiology and therapeutics covered in Year 2.

  • SHF105 Osteopathic Skills 1

    This module introduces the students to the concepts of osteopathic practice as well as the core clinical skills of basic life skills, patient moving and handling, and anatomical principles. It provides the foundation skills for all subsequent osteopathic skills modules for the programme.

  • SHF106 Osteopathic Skills 2

    This module continues to introduce the students to the concepts of osteopathic practice with regards to clinical decision making, patient management and key osteopathic clinical skills. In conjunction with Osteopathic Skills 1, it provides the foundation skills for all subsequent osteopathic skills modules for the programme.

  • SHF109 Anatomy and Physiology 1

    This module utilises lecture and laboratory based study to explore the anatomy and physiology of the major body systems. Furthermore, this module will be used to underpin the knowledge required to understand clinical presentation, diagnosis and osteopathic management of pathological conditions.

  • SHF200 Clinical Biomechanics and Imaging

    This module will examine the assessment of human movement, in terms of kinaesthesiology with an emphasis on clinical application of biomechanical principles in assessment, treatment and rehabilitation. Additionally, students will be introduced to the theory underpinning medical imaging and the clinical interpretation of various forms of imaging used in musculoskeletal assessment.

  • SHF203 Osteopathic Skills 3

    This module builds upon the other osteopathic diagnostic and assessment skills modules in year 1 to explore the application of key clinical skills at a developed level.

  • SHF204 Osteopathic Skills 4

    This module builds upon the other osteopathic skills in year 1 and year 2 to explore, evaluate and consolidate the application of key clinical skills at a developed level.

  • SHFM01 Autonomous Osteopathic Practice

    The student will demonstrate within this module the knowledge, skills and attitudes appropriate to seek registration with the General Osteopathy Council (GOsC).
