The Certificate in Driver Rehabilitation Therapy (DRT) is for licensed health care professionals with at least a bachelor's degree.
Alternatively, you may choose to take one or more courses independent of the certificate program for either: Professional Development or as electives towards your UF Master's or Doctoral degree.
The program provides an educational experience that concurrently focuses on development of specialized skills, advanced practice behaviors, leadership activities, and critical appraisal of research in the area of driver rehabilitation. Graduates of this program are qualified to be entry-level driver rehabilitation therapists working with medically-at-risk drivers through the lifespan.
UF's Professional Certificate: Driver Rehabilitation Therapy (DRT) program trains students to screen, assess and evaluate drivers who are medically-at-risk for driving or who are unfit to drive. Students will also learn to provide evidence-based interventions for experienced licensed drivers representing populations across the lifespan.
