Professors, residents and clerks with the Department of Surgery can rely on the collaboration of multidisciplinary professionals in rehabilitation working within the CHUS and the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at the Université de Sherbrooke.
The structure of the rehabilitation program implemented at the CHUS is based on clear objectives, skills of multidisciplinary teams, an approach closer to fieldworkers, and a well-structured process of practices assessment. This structure has resulted in improved clientele management and shorter delays.
Also, in order to address the training needs of the professionals in rehabilitation, the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences offers two combined baccalaureate-master’s programs in occupational therapy and physiotherapy at the Campus de la santé de Sherbrooke. The Department of Rehabilitation is actually composed of 11 geographic full-time professors.
