Bachelor of Science in Rehabilitation Science

What's special about a McGill B.Sc. in Rehabilitation Science (B.Sc.Rehab.Sci.)?

Excellence in research and teaching is the foundation and tradition of the School of Physical and Occupational Therapy, situated on McGill University's upper campus in a gracious downtown area of the beautiful city of Montreal, Quebec. The Faculty educates rehabilitation professionals and, through research, generates the body of knowledge which guides our professions to advance the health, function and participation of the individual in society. SPOT is recognized globally as a top-ranked academic institution, both in the delivery of enriched educational programs in the field of rehabilitation and also in the creation of new discoveries in rehabilitation science and the translation of that new knowledge to the practice arena.

Entrance to clinical practice in Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy requires a Professional Master's degree. In order to gain entrance to these programs two undergraduate degrees are offered: Bachelor of Science, Rehabilitation Science, major in Occupational Therapy and Bachelor of Science, Rehabilitation Science, major in Physical Therapy.
