Together with their Quebec colleagues, the professors at the School of Rehabilitation are leaders in the field of rehabilitation science. Since 1980, our professors have supervised more than 160 graduate students. Our researchers have received many awards and research grants from provincial and federal agencies and each year publish a significant number of scientific articles and participate in many national and international conferences.
