Students come into this program with an academic background in a related discipline as well as with workplace experience in disability management.

An Integrated Disability Management Program is a management tool aimed at the mitigation of workplace illness and injury, as well as prevention of the same.

In today's competitive marketplace, Disability Management Practitioners must bring not just life experience and motivation to the job, but real, tangible educational credentials and skills.

Within the (IDM) Professional Master Program, the areas of study include the Disability Management theory and practices; the related ethical and legal aspects; program development and maintenance; data management; program communication and marketing; management of mental health disabilities; management of disability claims with strong psychosocial overtones; and prevention strategies. The program addresses the requisite skills needed by disability management practitioners, such as communication and interviewing skills, leadership, case and claim management, return-to-work planning, consulting, project management, risk management and risk communication, outsourcing, program evaluation and improvement, and career development.
