The vision for the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences at Moravian College is to develop collaborative, inter-professional graduate programs in athletic training, occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech-language pathology within a single academic unit, with the B.S. in Health Sciences as the foundation.
By combining an entrepreneurial spirit and a unique curricular structure, students and faculty are able to engage across disciplines in a truly inter-professional educational environment modeled after best practices in the clinical setting. This collaborative environment is designed to foster student learning and engagement while avoiding traditional discipline-specific silos that impede learning.
This type of integrated professional program is currently implemented at only a handful of schools in the nation. Students are immersed in an inter-disciplinary model from day one, which provides the opportunity for inter-professional growth in three of the fastest growing occupations in health care. It is a model that you don’t find very often, but one that offers benefits to our students and provides significant recruitment advantage in the marketplace.

WORK SIDE-BY-SIDE WITH THE PROS
You’ll study, observe and collaborate with members of the St. Luke’s University Health Network team, the region’s largest provider of sports medicine services.
Clinicians from their premier sports medicine department see and treat real patients in our brand new sports medicine and rehabilitation center. That means more opportunity to observe rehabilitation specialists—a.k.a., the future you—in action.
“St. Luke’s University Health Network is proud to be partnered with Moravian College and the development of what promises to be the premier location for students looking to pursue careers in the rehabilitation sciences. This partnership is committed to providing students interested in the health sciences with unparalleled access to the best facilities and clinician-scholars.”
