The vision for the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences at Moravian University 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.
