Since its inception in 2012, Salus University’s Occupational Therapy (OT) program has continually strived to provide the most progressive inter-professional academic experience for its students. Offering one of the most specialized educational experiences for students with an interest in the occupational therapy profession, the department offers two distinctive programs.
Salus and Rosemont College have signed nine articulation agreements designed to enhance the educational experiences of both Salus students and Rosemont College through academic collaborations.
