WHAT IS THE ACADEMIC DOCTORAL DEGREE IN REHABILITATION SCIENCES?
Only in Rio de Janeiro, the Academic Doctoral Degree in Rehabilitation Sciences of UNISUAM is recognized by the Ministry of Education (MEC) since 2015. The course is designed to all professionals involved in rehabilitation who are able to undertake a PhD and is aimed at inserting students in autonomous, consolidated research programs and at creating and developing new nuclei of researchers, also promoting the professional exercise in highly qualified standards.
In addition, the course is part of the Postgraduate Program in Rehabilitation Sciences of UNISUAM, which also counts on the Master’s Degree and Post-Doctoral Fellowship to provide you with training even more complete.
THEORY AND APPLIED RESEARCH IN ONE PROGRAM
The Academic Doctorate in Rehabilitation Sciences covers from functional studies of performance and sports and sports rehabilitation until the improvement of strategies of promotion, prevention and insertion in public health policies.
The Rehabilitation Sciences Program is the only Doctoral Degree course at Rio de Janeiro state with a multidisciplinary approach. This configuration enables the interdisciplinary training of independent researchers and teachers from different academic backgrounds, who work or intend to work with rehabilitation and health promotion, articulating teaching and research.
In addition to the traditional study areas - Functional Assessment in Rehabilitation and Therapeutic Approach in Rehabilitation – the Program has also the study area of Rehabilitation in Sport and Adapted Sport, which includes the study of interventions to prevent and recover injuries from adapted sports practice and optimize the functional performance of athletes and para-athletes.
DIVERSIFIED STUDY AREAS
O The Academic Doctoral Degree in Rehabilitation Sciences has its study area focused on the Functional Aspects of Rehabilitation. The purpose of this area is to analyze the processes involved in functional responses, assessment methods and techniques, as well as the investigation of the effectiveness of interventions related to the prevention and physical rehabilitation of organic systems in the individual and population level.
A previsão de divulgação para o Processo Seletivo ocorre nos meses de maio ou outubro. As informações para participar da seleção estão disponíveis no Edital, disponibilizado aqui nesta página.

THERAPEUTIC APPROACH IN REHABILITATION
Study of primary, secondary and tertiary health care, considering the characteristics of the different population and their insertion into public health policies. Study of the effect of therapeutic interventions on functional capacity and quality of life in the developmental stages, aiming at the rehabilitation of disorders in different populations.
FUNCTIONAL ASSESSMENT IN REHABILITATION
Study of the functional aspects of the health-disease process in different populations, considering the biopsychosocial dimensions (morphological, biomechanical, physiological, pathophysiological, cognitive, emotional and participation). Development and validation of procedures and technologies for functional assessment in rehabilitation.
REHABILITATION IN SPORTS AND ADAPTED SPORTS
Study of the physiological, biomechanical and functional aspects related to the practice of sports and adapted sports, and the optimization of performance, covering recreational and professional practitioners in all age groups.
Study of the risk factors and protection of injuries from sports practice and the effects of interventions for their prevention, recovery and rehabilitation in several populations.
The Postgraduate Program in Rehabilitation Sciences has eight dedicated laboratories with state-of-the-art technology. Check out:
Laboratory of performance of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems
This laboratory is used to assess the pulmonary and cardiovascular function of healthy subjects and those with respiratory and/or cardiovascular diseases, as well as of other specific populations that require a more comprehensive health assessment, including the cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
Laboratory of human movement analysis
In this laboratory, resources and equipment are used to evaluate the skeletal muscle function, particularly strength and resistance to fatigue, with emphasis on subjects with orthopedic diseases and other populations that require a more comprehensive assessment of the skeletal muscles function.
Laboratory of muscle-skeletal performance
This laboratory is equipped with optical motion analysis systems, allowing the accomplishment of biomechanical analyzes by two-dimensional and three-dimensional movement analysis at different scales, from small (e.g., finger joints or face) to large (e.g., walking or running) aspects.
Laboratory of neurosciences in rehabilitation
This laboratory is equipped with devices for the physical rehabilitation of patients with neurological diseases and their sequelae, such as Parkinson's disease, including recovery of motor control, sensitivity and gait.
Laboratory of computational simulation and modeling in rehabilitation
In this laboratory, computers and latest generation programs are used to process and analyze biomedical signals from the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, as well as from the neuromuscular system. In this laboratory, computer programs are also developed for simulations and analysis of these signals.
Laboratory of kinetics and human kinematics
In this laboratory, research projects are conducted to assess static and dynamic postural control, including the assessment of the mechanical forces acting on the body and the muscular activity during motor tasks. Static posture assessments are also performed using computerized photogrammetry.
Laboratory of cardiopulmonary performance during exercise
This laboratory performs the assessment of the cardiopulmonary system during activities of submaximal and maximum physical stress, attending mainly to sports and adapted sports, as well as healthy individuals and with other diseases with impact in these systems.
Laboratory of virtual reality in rehabilitation
This laboratory develops and uses virtual reality technology to analyze dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system in order to propose interventions for a variety of health conditions.
