PhD in Rehabilitation Science:
The PhD in Rehabilitation Medicine program curriculum is founded on a bio-psycho-social-environmental framework and a commitment to interdisciplinary practice. Though we expect each student's pathway to be highly individualized, all students will complete specific requirements:
- A seven-quarter core course series (21 credits)
- Extensive coursework or independent study in research methods (minimum of 18 credits)
- Coursework and practicum experiences in teaching (minimum of 5 credits)
- Three cognates (interrelated areas of study) specific to his or her goals (minimum of 6 credits each). Each cognate will include a series of courses and/or independent studies.
In addition to these requirements, the curriculum for each student will include preparation for general exams, the presentation of pilot research to faculty and students, and a dissertation. The student's committee and the core faculty members of the Rehabilitation Science PhD Program must approve the entire course of study.
