Organisation profile

The Department of Rehabilitation Sciences of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) began to provide professional training to occupational therapists and physiotherapists in 1978. Striding into 2018, we will be celebrating the commemorative 40th anniversary!

After 40 years of development, we have now 44 faculty members from assistant professor to chair professor in the areas of physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and related basic sciences. More glaringly, all of them have a PhD degree from prestigious local and overseas universities. In addition, we have 19 clinical associates/senior clinical associates providing more hands on teaching to our students and a team of more than 45 supporting administrative and technical staff.
