The State of Undergraduate Rehabilitation Education: Current Program Coordinator Perspectives
Find in a Library
The current climate of higher education, the implementation of the Workforce Opportunity and Innovation Act, and the 2017 merger of accrediting bodies have created changes within the field of rehabilitation. These changes must be appropriately addressed in order to fortify a profession that has long been instrumental in ensuring that individuals with disabilities are able to achieve a satisfactory quality of life.
This study was designed to provide current undergraduate rehabilitation education (URE) information to the field for discussion and planning purposes.
This research represents the results of a survey of URE program coordinators (n = 26) on the current state of their programs and programmatic needs.
Recommendations for current URE programs and future research directions are provided.
