Our Master of Occupational Therapy (MSOT) degree program gives Salus University students the basic skills they need as a direct care provider, consultant, educator, manager, researcher and advocate for both the profession and the consumer.


Graduates of the Master of Occupational Therapy (MSOT) degree program at Salus University will be eligible to sit for the national certification examination for the occupational therapist administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT).
