Rehabilitation Sciences prepare practicing professionals for leadership roles in health-related disciplines. The program's courses develop:

  • advanced knowledge of movement control and the basis for movement dysfunction,
  • skills in measurement of impairment, functional limitations, and disability,
  • Skills in research on movement dysfunction and the outcomes of rehabilitation, oral and written communication skills.

The program culminates in a research thesis or project on a topic of interest. Graduates of the program are prepared to engage in scientifically-based musculoskeletal or neurologic research, entry-level teaching or graduate study at the doctoral level.

Graduate students in rehabilitation sciences have access to faculty mentors with a wide variety of backgrounds in both basic and clinical sciences. In addition, there are the specialized clinical facilities with which the department maintains clinical affiliation agreements. Departmental laboratory facilities include a movement science laboratory, a clinical gait and motion analysis laboratory.
