A rehabilitation director (also known as a director of rehabilitation, or DOR), serves as the team leader for a group of professionals who comprise a facility's rehabilitation department. They are generally responsible for overseeing the rehabilitation department's financial affairs, as well as the hiring and maintenance of the rehabilitation team. In smaller facilities, the rehabilitation director may also have direct contact with patients and serve as a hands-on member of the rehabilitation team.
