The doctoral and master's programs in Rehabilitation Science at Queen's University stress the multi-disciplinary contribution of many health professions and disciplines to rehabilitation. The two fields of study (Motor Performance in Rehabilitation and Disability & Wellness in the Community) encompass these aspects of rehabilitation. There also exists an inter-dependency between the two fields and several faculty members conduct research that spans both fields.
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. This approach is an innovative feature of the program and is unique to the Queen's program in Rehabilitation Science.
Application Deadline: February 15
Notification of acceptance: end of March.
Our students have the opportunity to work in a variety of related facilities, including the Human Mobility Research Centre (HMRC) and at Kingston General Hospital, Hotel Dieu Hospital and Providence Care in Kingston.
"I had a wonderful experience in graduate school at Queen's. The faculty were very supportive and the research facilities were exceptional. My program provided me with opportunities to improve my teaching skills and to present my research at national and international conferences. My doctorate from Queen's School of Rehabilitation Therapy opened the door to a post-doctoral opportunity and a tenure-track faculty position within a Canadian physiotherapy program."
Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact faculty members with whom they would like to study. Final acceptance into the program is dependent on allocation of a supervisor for the student.
