The Department of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences is at the forefront of developing innovative academics, research, and social-justice programs aimed at both preventing injury and disability and helping those who have illnesses, short-term injuries, or long-term physical or psychological disabilities lead full, satisfying and meaningful lives.
The department encompasses programs in athletic training, occupational therapy, physical therapy and recreational therapy, as well as an undergraduate health professions degree that prepares students for graduate study in these disciplines. Our programs train clinicians who provide advanced therapies and treatments ranging from injury prevention and wellness protection to adaptation and rehabilitation—all focused on improving and protecting patients’ quality of life and overall well-being.
