We deliver our disability and rehabilitation management courses through a combination of lectures, presentations and practical examples. You will work with a cohort—a group of your peers who share experiences and ideas from their own professional backgrounds.
Coursework: What to expect
Courses have pre-reading and assignments. You can expect to spend between two and four hours on each assignment. You will also make presentations and participate in exercises, group discussions and case studies.
We evaluate and grade all courses on a pass/fail basis using a combination of your assignments, individual or group projects, exams, participation and attendance.
To receive your Rehabilitation and Disability Management Diploma, complete and pass all courses and submit a graduation request form.
Start with a rehabilitation and disability management workshop
If you're not ready for a diploma program, we recommend starting with our stand-alone professional development workshop, Cross-Cultural Competencies in Rehabilitation. It's a great introduction to the field.
Additionally, we sometimes have available spaces in our rehabilitation and disability management courses after our diploma students have registered. Visit our courses section for details.
