Thats incredibly vague but at our hospital the program director is usually a doc that specializes in rehab medicine. The director is usually responsible for hiring a team usually of rehab and physio nurses,a social worker and an administration assistant. The director is responsible for creating and implementing the rehab program.

The director usually doesn't have to create the entire plan, all members usually help but the director is the person responsible for everything.

Hi Moia,

Thank you so much for the info, that was really helpful to start off with. Believe me i was clueless. To give you some info about myself I am a student from Kinesiology so dont know much about what goes on inside a hospital so you guys here will be of great help.

On the same lines it would be great if others could expand on how it works in your respective hospitals or your own job responsibilities if you are a program dir yourself.

Thankx a tonne
