The Master of Clinical Rehabilitation from Flinders University has three pathways:

Pathway 1 - aims to enable individuals from any health professional background to deepen their knowledge base and skills in a variety of areas of Rehabilitation Practice. In addition, students will have the opportunity to develop research or practice expertise in an area of Clinical Rehabilitation and to apply this to a specific research or evidence-based Practice Project.

Pathway 2 - enables students to review the principles and practice of Clinical Rehabilitation and then focus their study on one area of clinical practice including undertaking a significant Research Project.

Pathway 3 - enables students to review the principles and practice of Clinical Rehabilitation and then complete a 36 unit Thesis as a Research Higher Degree.

Specifically, the course aims to:

  • review the principles and practice of Clinical Rehabilitation and apply these to contemporary practice;
  • model a team approach to problem solving, assessment and management within rehabilitation;
  • enable practitioners to analyse and apply evidence-based practice in rehabilitation;
  • enable students to study rehabilitation approaches and/or interventions across a number of practice areas or on one area in detail.


Graduates can work in both public and private health care organisations. They may also work in teaching, managerial or research positions.
