Welcome. On behalf of our faculty and staff, I welcome you to the Health and Rehabilitation Science PhD Program. We are pleased to have you join our community here in the College of Health Professions.

We recognize that arriving on campus and getting started can be a bit overwhelming. Peruse these resources to become familiar with upcoming deadlines, procedures to get you established on campus, and more. If you have any questions, or problems getting started, don’t hesitate to call us. Again, congratulations, and we look forward to seeing you very soon.
