The School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences

The School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences was established in 1994. The constituent divisions of 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 divisions.  Each division also offers a number of postgraduate coursework and higher degree research programs.  Each of the undergraduate degree programs is of four years' duration and includes both preclinical and clinical study offered in an integrated way.  Except for the Audiology Program, the graduate entry programs are accelerated two-year programs, inclusive of summer semesters.

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.  Students within each of the four divisions 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. The School operates client-oriented clinics to support the teaching and research activities of the School and to provide a service to the community.

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. The School offers Research Higher Degree programs in all disciplines.
