The field of Rehabilitation Science encompasses basic and applied
aspects of the health sciences, social science and engineering as they
relate to restoring human functional capacity and improving a person's
interactions with the surrounding environment. Established in 2001, the Division of Rehabilitation
Sciences at UTMB developed an infrastructure to support research related
to rehabilitation, disability and recovery. Programs include a
respected PhD program, career training and development, funding
opportunities for PhD students and postdoctoral fellows, and
infrastructure for large data research and data sharing.
