The program is open to a range of professionals including practising Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Exercise Physiologists, and Registered Nurses wanting to expand their knowledge in the area of neurological rehabilitation. Students will develop their ability to provide specialist care across a range of neurological conditions and settings, from acute to community-based services, and will enhance their confidence and engagement in the provision of best-practice care.
