Description

The Rehabilitation Assistant program provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to provide safe and competent rehabilitative care to clients and their families.

Program content involves patient/health care provider simulations, which includes effective communication within the healthcare setting.

Specializations

Credit transfer opportunities may be available. Contact us for more details.

Work Practicum

The Rehabilitation Assistant program includes two 6-week Work Practicum rotations. The rotations should provide a range of Rehabilitation experience ranging from institutional to community or private practice. The MITT Rehabilitation Assistant Practicum is a preceptor-led placement where students work with an institutionally appointed Rehabilitation Assistant or Licensed Therapist in a clinical setting.

Students will require the following clearances in advance of the Work Practicum:

  •         Police Information Check (PIC) and Vulnerable Sector (VS) check;
  •         Child Abuse Registry check; and
  •         Adult Abuse Registry check. 

The PIC must be dated within six months of the start of the Work Practicum to be valid; therefore, students may require another PIC clearance for their second rotation. 

An up-to-date immunization record (as per the WRHA Guidelines for Health Care Workers), as well as a current PHIA certificate, an Emergency First Aid and Health Care Provider CPR certificate, N95 Mask fitting, WHMIS training, Violence Protection Program Training, and a Non-Violent Crisis Intervention certificate (NVCI) are required for the Work Practicum eligibility. Please refer to the supply list for the associated costs and training scheduling provisions.

MITT does not guarantee a work practicum placement and in such situations, the Institute may explore alternative options for program completion with a student. MITT also reserves the right to assign students to out-of-town placements including remote Regional Health Authority facilities (such as The Pas, Thompson, and Churchill). Students will be responsible for all transportation and accommodation costs associated with the assigned placement.

Verification of a valid Co-op Work Permit authorization must be provided to the College prior to the start of Work Practicum. See the Work Practicum outline for details on all eligibility criteria and general expectations.
