About Us

The UBC Rehabilitation Science Online Programs (RSOP) are a joint endeavour of two departments in the Faculty of Medicine:
(1) the Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy (OS&OT) and
(2) the Department of Physical Therapy.

Former RSOP Program Director, Sue Stanton, Associate Professor Emerita in the Department of OS&OT, spear headed the development of the programs from 2000 to 2016. Patricia Mortenson, Instructor and Supervisor for the RSOP, and Clinical Assistant Professor in OSOT, took over the reigns as Program Manager from 2016 to 2018. Leslie Duran, RSOP instructor, now spear-heads the RSOP as Program Director. Tracy Strauch joined the RSOP team in 2013 until Spring 2019 as the Program Assistant. In April 2019 Sonia Ben Slimane took over as Program Assistant.
