PhD in Rehabilitation Sciences Tuition & Fees

Full tuition scholarships for courses at MGH Institute of Health Professions are given to accepted PhD students each year.

This page outlines tuition and fees for students entering the PhD in Rehabilitation Sciences Program.

Tuition

2016 - 2017

PhD in Rehabilitation Sciences  Per Credit Hour: $1,125
This tuition is covered  by a scholarship for your first two years.

Students receive a scholarship for the first two years of the program that covers all of the tuition costs for the core courses that are offered at MGH IHP (minimum of 34 credits).

Students are also required to take a minimum of three supplementary courses relevant to their area of research. These supplemental courses are taken at the IHP, or more often at one of the many top-level universities in the Boston Area. 

Tuition costs for these courses may be covered if the courses are taken at institutions with which we have established agreements. Otherwise these additional costs must be covered by the student.

Once the student is in dissertation status, typically starting in the third year and extending through the fourth year, the student is responsible for paying a continuing student fee (approximately equivalent to one credit) each semester until the dissertation is completed.
