Curriculum - PhD in Rehabilitation Sciences
Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences
The curriculum is accelerated and condensed from the conventional 60 semester credit requirement to an enhanced 48 quarter credit minimum for students entering with a graduate degree (e.g., MS, DPT). A comprehensive examination and a dissertation research project are required. The PhD degree can be completed in 3-1/2 to 4 years of fulltime study.
Consistent with the highest standards in quality PhD education, students immerse themselves in study with a research mentor. Scheduling of the onsite residency period depends on the research plan and the faculty-student contract.
