Kim Gordon Ingwersen graduated as a bachelor in physiotherapy in 2007 from University College Aarhus and as a Master of Science in Health Science in 2011 from the University of Aarhus. In 2016 he defended his Ph.D. thesis “Diagnostic evaluation of Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy and the effect of three months of progressive high load exercise treatment”, at the University of Southern Denmark. Since 2007 Kim has been employed at Department of Physio- and Occupational Therapy, Vejle Hospital, and from 2016 as head of research at the Department, in a combined research and clinical employment. From 2019 Kim has also been employed as post-doctoral researcher with affiliation to Department of Regional Health Science at the University of Southern Denmark.
From 2022, Kim will be affiliated with Section for Biostatistics and Evidence-Based Research, at the Parker Institute as part of his research efforts as senior researcher. Here the emphasis of collaboration will be on promoting the quality of clinical and patient-oriented health care research through the advancement and application of innovative methods of conducting and presenting primary research; synthesizing research results, and ultimately translating the clinical research findings into optimal clinical practice. The post-doctoral research plan currently focusses on musculoskeletal injuries and rehabilitation, e.g. exploring contextual (prognostic) factors, and if possible the ability to predict who will suffer from persistent shoulder pain one year after their primary diagnosis.
