Clemson offers a couple different paths for students interested in working in a rehabilitation medicine field. We offer a three-year certificate program, which prepares you to meet the requirements for entry into many rehabilitation medicine programs. However, professional-level programs in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and communications sciences and disorders require a bachelor’s degree prior to acceptance. In those cases, you can select from any major Clemson offers. Our Bachelor of Science in biological sciences with a prerehabilitation sciences emphasis is specifically designed to fulfill the requirements for rehabilitation sciences programs. This path also appeals to students who want to earn a Clemson undergraduate degree before entering professional school.
