We have programs in eight different areas of the health sciences - from PT, OT, speech, to PA and nursing, to ABA, mental health and IO psychology. Whichever program you graduate from, the hallmark of a School of Health Sciences at Touro College graduate is someone well-trained - taught by expert faculty, you have the knowledge and skills to excel in your field; well-versed - you’re up on the current literature and research and can keep up with the latest advances; and a well-doer - you are committed to doing good in your community, advocating for your patients and profession.
What Sets Us Apart?
Rigorous for a reason.
You're taught by active practitioners who combine the best of pedagogy and practice. They bring their clinical experience into the classroom, and know what you need to succeed.
More important than your A+, it is how you apply your book smarts that matters. The degree is not a badge of honor, but a responsibility. Our graduates are known for their compassion and their character, as much as they are for their skills.
State of change.
A relatively young institution, we value adaptability and agility. You’ll learn in an environment that embraces change and invests in innovation, shaping and preparing you to think similarly.
Believe in yourself. We do.
Our small classes and accessible faculty contribute to our supportive environment. From faculty and classmates alike, the overwhelming support, encouragement and confidence will help you reach your goals. You'll find yourself another family at the School of Health Sciences at Touro.

Debby Schwartz, OTD, OTR/L, CHT is an adjunct professor for the occupational therapy orthotics class. She has been mailing orthotic material to the students so they can make their orthosis at home. A couple of weeks ago she had 31 students make 5 finger orthoses. "Although it was challenging, and tiring, I enjoyed the session very much- I hope the students did as well." #orthotics #orthosis #onlinelearning #makingitwork #stayhome #otstudents #fingerorthosis #otschool #onlinelab #finger #tourohealthsciences
