Rehabilitation Sciences Electives

RHSC 504: Directed Studies. This course involves independent study of a project related to rehabilitation sciences which is consistent and supportive of the educational and professional goals of the graduate student. Each 3-credit directed study should reflect a minimum of 80 hours of work on the part of the student. Directed study can be supervised by any School of Rehabilitation Sciences faculty member who is a member or associate member of the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. Direct contact with the Faculty member can vary dependent on the focus of the course.

RHSC 506: Current Topics in Rehabilitation Sciences. This is a placeholder course that can be used by a faculty member that would like to teach a subject that is not already offered in the current curriculum.

RHSC 514: Introduction to Neuroimaging. Basic concepts and applications to research and practice. This 3-credit graduate elective seminar course is aimed towards students with a clinical or science background who wish to learn about basic neuroimaging tools used in clinical and research settings. This will be a survey course to introduce a number of neuroimaging tools so that students can gain a basic understanding of the applications of these tools to understand neurological function and neurological disorders.

RHSC 515: Physical Activity in Health and Chronic Conditions. To explore the epidemiology, measurement, physiology, and adoption of physical activity in the prevention and treatment of chronic conditions.

RHSC 520: Neurorehabilitation. Therapeutic approaches and strategies in rehabilitation for persons with common neurological conditions.
