Vocational pursuits

The Faculty of Education has launched Canada's first ever master's degree program in Vocational Rehabilitation Counselling.

The two-year program, operating from UBC's Point Grey campus and UBC at Robson Square, will train students in a broad spectrum of rehabilitation services including disability management in order to help people with disabilities effectively integrate or re-integrate into the community and workforce.

Its interdisciplinary focus will bring together instructors from the faculties of Medicine and Education and the School of Rehabilitation Sciences. The Workers' Compensation Board of B.C. contributed to an endowment fund to support the new program. Another major sponsor is Great-West Life Assurance Company.

The program will be co-ordinated by Assoc. Prof. Izabela Schultz in the Faculty of Education.
