Occupational Therapy (OT)
The School of Health Sciences of Touro University

Empower a student with learning or neurodevelopmental differences to participate more fully on the playground or coach a senior adult recovering from a head injury to be independent again.

An occupational therapist (OT) helps people of all ages develop the skills needed to manage everyday life activities, and encourages participation in their roles in home, school, workplace, community, and many other settings. The work is challenging and extremely rewarding. Most occupational therapists work in hospitals or occupational therapy practices, while others work in schools, physicians’ offices, home health services or nursing homes.

Want to help others help themselves? Once you complete our three-year program, you’ll earn a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences and a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy and you will be prepared for the national board exams, so you can start your career and make an impact. You can also choose to take your degree at Touro even further by completing a post-professional doctorate in Occupational Therapy (OTD) in just one additional year.

Detailed requirements can be found on the OT Master's program website.
