Rehabilitation for people affected by old age and illness or other serious health issues caused by other conditions, is a dynamic process, which is provided by a multi-professional team of specialists. RSU Faculty of Rehabilitation offers a wide range of study programmes.


Health is a great value, but we often become aware of it only when we face functional limitations created by health disorders. Rehabilitation is a multi-professional sector of health care and the aim of rehabilitation specialists is to promote and optimise opportunities for persons with health disorders and take part in a wide range of life processes - at home, work and in society.
