Welcome from the Director
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Touro College Occupational Therapy Assistant Department's web portal. I hope you will find the information here helpful. We are always available to answer any additional questions you may have on topics not covered here.
Our program is designed to fulfill the Touro College mission of making education accessible to all. This design includes scheduling evening classes for this Associate's-level program. In addition, you will find our faculty and staff extremely accessible, helpful, and supportive.
I urge you to consider the Touro College Occupational Therapy Assistant Program. The program sequence includes all required prerequisites, so both returning students and just-out-of-high school students can earn a degree leading to a career which is dynamic, rewarding, and perhaps most important - beneficial to society. In addition, we will work closely with those students who have some college credit to re-order the Liberal Arts course requirements to meet your scheduling and credit-load needs. (Please see our recommended course sequence and course descriptions.)
Welcome - I look forward to greeting you personally.
Julie Kardachi, MA, OTR/L
Chair and Director, OTA Department -School of Health Sciences.
