Dr. Monahan instructs students as Dr. King evaluates a teen driver

Program Objective

Health care professionals with a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in the health sciences will be trained to become entry level DRS’s. The program will provide students with a systematic understanding of the relevant knowledge inside and outside their scope of practice and a critical awareness of current problems or new insights, much of which is informed by the evidence and practice regarding driver rehabilitation, as outlined below:

  1. Utilize best practices and best evidence to make fitness to drive determinations across a variety of clinical specialties (e.g., neurology, pediatrics, gerontology), and across various settings (e.g., in-patient, outpatient, home health), across the lifespan (e.g., teens to older adults) of at-risk populations.
  2. Analyze and conduct research on driver rehabilitation to advance the body of knowledge in a specific area of practice.
  3. Assess and intervene with complex client cases and make clinical judgments based on established driver rehabilitation principles, techniques, and evidence.
  4. Communicate assessment results, intervention plans, rehabilitation strategies, vehicle adaptations, and client outcomes through a variety of methods (orally, written reports, vehicle modification prescriptions, referrals, regulatory decisions) to clients, families, health care providers and community stakeholders.
