201  Introduction to Rehabilitation Science  (2 units)   Fall

Instructor(s): R. Souza       Prerequisite(s): Consent of instructor.

Restrictions: First-year students in the PhD in Rehabilitation Science program.       Activities: Lecture

This required course for PhD students 1) provides an introduction to the areas of rehabilitation science research, and 2) provides historical perspective on the major issues in rehabilitation science. Students will learn about resources and on-going research projects within the University, and will read classic papers of the last 150 years with the objective of understanding the fundamental discoveries that have shaped the discipline of rehabilitation science.

202  Gross and Regional Anatomy  (1 units)   Fall, Winter, Spring

Instructor(s): K. Topp       Prerequisite(s): Consent of instructor

Restrictions: First-year students in the PhD in Rehabilitation Science program       Activities: Laboratory

Students investigate a regional of human anatomy with direct relevance to their area of research interest. Course includes mentored cadaveric dissection, radiological imaging, ultrasound imaging, focused study of embalmed material. Goals are to gain a deep understanding of the region of interest and to relate the knowledge to studies in the Musculoskeletal Biomechanics or Clinically Informed Neuroscience tracks. Example foci are lower limb joints, nerve paths, spinal cord in situ.
