Physical Rehabilitation Science

The Graduate Program in Physical Rehabilitation Science is aimed at training researchers capable of advancing the field of physical rehabilitation in order to improve the lives of people with functional impairments.

Moving beyond the typically employed paradigms, we attempt to understand the pathophysiology, pathokinesiology and neuromotor control deficits underlying the impairments that lead to functional disability.

Through understanding the deficits first we aim to improve rehabilitation from a mechanistic perspective. Drawing on links with key departments within the School of Medicine and two sister Universities, the Graduate Program in Physical Rehabilitation Science offers a comprehensive interdisciplinary learning experience leading to a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Physical Rehabilitation Science.
