NEIT to Offer Hybrid Bachelor Degree in Rehabilitation Sciences

 

RehabScienceEAST GREENWICH, RI – Dr. Douglas H. Sherman, Senior Vice President and Provost at New England Institute of Technology (NEIT), announced that the university will offer a new Bachelor of Science degree program in Rehabilitation Sciences (BS to RS). This innovative inter-professional program offers students the opportunity to support individuals with disabilities to regain functional independence through the analysis of physical, cognitive, and perceptual skills and then provide interventions using clinical reasoning and advanced analytical processes.

The BS to RS program utilizes assistive technology interventions so students will engage in hands-on learning to maximize an individual’s engagement in activities within their home, work, school and community environments. Students will work with inter-professional team members as they advance their knowledge in disability rights, services and advocacy.  This program will be delivered in a hybrid format with students meeting on campus approximately five times per quarter, every other week, allowing them to complete their education utilizing a flexible schedule.

Knowledge in physical rehabilitation, assistive technology and occupational science prepares students for career advancement in healthcare, patient advocacy, or graduate studies in occupational therapy, engineering-related fields, physical therapy, sports medicine or architectural design. Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants may be eligible for advanced standing in the Master of Science degree program in Occupational Therapy (MSOT) also offered at NEIT upon partial completion of the BS to RS program.

Sherman stated, “This new hybrid program provides an advanced degree for students with an associate degree in healthcare or related fields.  Utilizing hands-on applications, technological interventions, and environmental modifications, students learn best practices to promote functional independence and enhance the care of individuals with disabilities.  The BS to RS degree also prepares students for application to graduate studies in various fields.”

The BS to RS program will be offered in July, 2016.  For more information, contact NEIT’s Admissions office at 800-736-7744, 401-467-7744, or NEITAdmissions@neit.edu. Visit www.neit.edu for a complete program description and curriculum.
