School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences

The School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at The University of Queensland was established in 1994 and is one of seven schools in the Faculty of Health Sciences. The constituent disciplines in the School are Audiology, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Speech Pathology.  Undergraduate programs are available in Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Speech Pathology with graduate entry programs available in all disciplines. Postgraduate coursework and higher degree research programs are offered within the School. Each of the undergraduate degree programs is of four years’ duration and includes both preclinical and clinical study offered in an integrated way. The graduate entry programs are accelerated programs running for two and a half years, or two years (including summer semester) depending on the discipline. Considerable emphasis is placed within the educational programs on problem solving and diagnostic decision-making and students are guided in the processes of systematic and holistic assessment and the selection and effective implementation of management approaches. Each discipline prepares students to operate within the health, education and related systems and to contribute meaningfully to team efforts. Teaching to multidisciplinary groups within the School paves the way for interdisciplinary involvement in client care and interdisciplinary research.

All disciplines within the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences are active in research and are making significant contributions to the advancement of knowledge in their professions. Students within the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences gain supervised professional experience as part of their academic program and on completion of their degree, graduates are ready for immediate entry to their profession.
