Touro University Nevada is the first to offer a professional degree in occupational therapy in the state of Nevada. The first students began studies in 2005. Since then, we have admitted a new group of students each July. Class sizes are a maximum of 34 students. Each student receives a faculty advisor who monitors progression through the curriculum and offers guidance toward success. Taught by highly qualified full-time faculty members, students also benefit from a community of partner clinicians who welcome students into their clinical settings.
The School of Occupational Therapy offers a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy. A master’s degree in occupational therapy is required to enter the profession as an occupational therapist. The curricula are designed to expedite progression through a condensed curriculum design. The curriculum is designed for students to attend year-around, 5 days a week in order to acquire a degree in 24 months and enter the workforce.
