The online Master of Rehabilitation Sciences (MRSc)  from University of British Columbia is designed for working health professionals who wish to gain the knowledge to impact care and shape future practice.


Unlike traditional thesis-based research master's programs, the MRSc offers a course-based degree or the option of combining courses and a work- or practice-based research project.You can complete the MRSc degree while working full-time. 

This prevents any loss of income while pursuing graduate studies. Most learners choose to complete the degree within three to five years part-time. You can graduate in one year if you study full-time. Please note, the MRSc is not an entry-level credential for rehabilitation practice in Canada or other countries: that is, completing the program does not enable you to practice as a health professional.

 The MRSc is an advanced degree for health professionals already working in rehabilitation.


In the Master of Rehabilitation Sciences (MRSc)  from University of British Columbia you will learn how to:

  • design and execute knowledge translation plans to change outdated practices.
  • develop and deliver education programs for patients, and/or to equip colleagues with the knowledge and skills to improve care.
  • facilitate interprofessional reasoning for improved decision making.
