Welcome to the only professional occupational therapy degree programs in Nevada. The Master of Science in Occupational Therapy (MSOT) degree began in 2005 and the Occupational Therapy Doctorate (OTD) degree began in 2017.
ACOTE has mandated that by 2027 all OT programs will be entry-level doctoral programs. Pending approval of ACOTE accreditation for the Touro OTD program, starting the Fall of 2019, Touro will transition to only offering the entry-level doctoral degree.
