PhD in Rehabilitation Sciences

Mission & Vision

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.

Our vision is to support and encourage graduate education and research training programs to produce, promote and conduct interdisciplinary research that examines methods of prevention, intervention, and recovery associated with disabilities and chronic disease that limit a person's ability to engage in meaningful personal, community, recreational, and vocational activities
