Clinical Rehabilitation

Welcome to Clinical Rehabilitation at Flinders University, department of Rehabilitation Aged and Extended Care.

Our aims are to:

  • provide innovative research of relevance to older disabled people and their families
  • create an environment that values and promotes academic excellence, efficiency, creativity, leadership and teamwork

We offer postgraduate courses in Clinical Rehabilitation, for full time and part time study, either onshore or online, for individuals from any health professional background to enhance their knowledge and skills in the area of clinical rehabilitation.

Our student population comprises a wide range of professional backgrounds and geographical locations.


In 2015 we are pleased to announce a series of short courses to meet professional development needs. The program for 2016 is currently in development and will be uploaded shortly.


The Department is involved in the Doctor of Medicine (MD) at Flinders University.

In a vertically integrated manner, students are exposed to the clinical practice of Rehabilitation & Aged Extented Care during all four years of the course. The MD emphasises problem-based learning (PBL) and much of the teaching in Rehabilitation & Aged Care is problem-based.

Exposure to the more clinical aspects of Rehabilitation & Aged Care is also provided, particularly in the later years.
