Program Format

The Ph.D. program in rehabilitation and movement science is a hybrid program, blending online learning (85 percent) with two one-week on-campus sessions per year (15 percent). This format helps supports working healthcare professionals who want to further their careers and pursue work in education and research.

Online Format

For online courses within the program, students will be required to use Canvas for the asynchronous online courses, and both Canvas and Zoom for the synchronous statistics courses. The statistics courses will have an online portion and a weekly real-time Zoom meeting with an on-campus attendance option. Additional instructions will be provided with each course.

On-campus Sessions

Each year following completion of the summer semester and prior to the start of the fall semester, students will participate in a one-week, on-campus boot camp with faculty and peers. Discussion and activities will focus on reviewing the previous year's work and preparing for the year to come. The second on-site week takes place at the completion of the fall semester. Additional on-campus meetings can be arranged by the student with the respective course instructors and mentors as needed.
