UAB Health Professions 2013
The UAB School of Health Professions has a longstanding tradition of providing excellent professional education in physical and occupational therapy. In recent years, however, an explosion of new research efforts have positioned the school as a national leader in rehabilitation science as well. Propelled by the development of the new Ph.D. program in rehabilitation sciences, the creation of the unique UAB/Lakeshore Foundation Research Collaborative, and the addition of several nationally renowned investigators, SHP continues to expand its research footprint.
