Joan McDowell is Senior Lecturer in Nursing & Health Care and has fulfilled many roles. She was awarded her PhD, by published works, from the University of Glasgow in 2013. Her thesis was on the Management of Type 2 diabetes mellitus in Primary Care. She was awarded the McNaught prize as the best academic student for her Masters' studies. In 2006 she was awarded the Edward Clarence Dyason Fellowship to work in the University of Melbourne.

Her teaching spans undergraduate, postgraduate and CPD provision. For several years she led the Diabetes in Community Care course (1990-2006) that was a precursor for others. In 2004 she successfully led the development of the MSc (Med Sci) in Health Care. She is the Programme Director for the Graduate Certificate: Burns and Plastic Care in Adults and Paediatrics that was developed in partnership with Colleagues in NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde, Burns & Plastics Directorate and is the only one of its kind in Scotland.

She has held several consultancies and external examiners positions.

In 2011, Dr McDowell was seconded into NHS Education for Scotland to fulfil the role of National Education Co-ordinator for diabetes.  One key outcome was the development of a website for diabetes education in Scotland: www.diabeteseducationscotland.org.uk.

She continues to serve on the Scottish Government's Diabetes Education Advisory Group; Long Term Conditions Minority Ethnic Group and on a short life Health Improvement Scotland Diabetes in Scottish Hospitals working group and the Diabetes Education Network UK.

Her research is predominantly in diabetes care and particularly in patient education and self management. Dr McDowell and colleagues completed a large evaluation study on the Glasgow Diabetes Project. She is the Co-Editor of two textbooks on diabetes. She was a member of SIGN 116 (2010) and is currently a member of the Novo Nordisk UK Research Foundation: Research Selection Committee.
