KHS Research Seminar in Rehabilitation and Movement Science

(REMS 690)

This seminar course is primarily designed to allow students an opportunity to conduct research presentations to a supportive, critical audience.  Furthermore, students are exposed to the breadth of rehabilitation and movement science research.  In addition, seminars presented  by experienced researchers provide excellent examples of varying styles of professional research presentations.  Seminar topics provide opportunities for students and faculty to interact and exchange ideas across the breadth of our scientific disciplines.
