|Description:||The graduate programs in Rehabilitation Science at Queen’s University stress the multidisciplinary contribution of many health professions and disciplines to rehabilitation. Our areas of research and expertise encompass speciality areas in rehabilitation, including human mobility and motor control, community participation of people with disability across the lifespan, work place health and accommodation, social policy in health and disability, the science of knowledge mobilisation into practice, and health professional education. The innovative feature of this program is the interdisciplinarity which attracts students from varied backgrounds including occupational and physical therapy, kinesiology, psychology, social work, epidemiology and others.
Our students are exposed to the broadest scope of rehabilitation science and are provided with a unique opportunity to develop insight and understanding of the multidisciplinary and inter-professional aspects of rehabilitation. They have the opportunity to conduct research in the Human Mobility Research Centre and many other community agencies and venues. Students have travel opportunities both within and outside Canada for data collection and conference travel.
