Rehabilitation Sciences Programs

In our professional graduate programs in rehabilitation sciences we strive to create outstanding learning and research experiences for occupational therapists, physical therapists and others with various health backgrounds. Through these opportunities, graduates advance the science of rehabilitation which aims to promote physical, mental and social well-being among people of all levels of ability. Our collaborative initiatives result in a reciprocal transfer of new knowledge among academic, clinical, and community settings. Graduates from our programs go on to become research scientists, clinical scientists and consultants to government, health authorities and other organizations with interests in rehabilitation.

To facilitate the advancement of the science of rehabilitation, faculty members from the Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy and from  the Department of Physical Therapy bring together their wide range of research interests to provide an enriched learning environment. Graduate students participate in the interprofessional and interdisciplinary collaboration embraced by faculty members to produce high quality research. A variety of research methodologies, both quantitative and qualitative, are conducted with rigour and publishing is strongly encouraged.
