This graduate-level, blended-learning track is completed in 8 quarters (2 years). A new Cohort starts each summer quarter. This track is using a spiral learning format. The first year is in theory and the second year is in-person and in-practice, concentrating on clinical, technical and patient management skills. Quarters seven and eight have two summative courses in which the students demonstrate and test their learning, both in practice and in theory.

Please apply directly to LLU. If you are in the process of finishing necessary courses, please label the courses as ‘in progress’. You do not need to wait until everything is completed to send in your LLU application. This is important, because of the rolling admission.

Please contact the department to submit unofficial transcripts for free evaluation and advisement.  This will greatly facilitate your application process.

International interests and applicants are evaluated on an individual basis. Please contact the department directly for guidance and to discuss your specific options. International Scholar information can be found on the International Students webpage.

How to Apply

The Hybrid MSOP program utilizes rolling admission, which means we evaluate applications as they are received, versus waiting to evaluate all applications after a hard deadline. We will continue to evaluate applications until we've filled all the slots for our incoming class. Students are accepted to enter the Hybrid MSOP track based on competencies, prerequisites, and necessary coursework. The sooner you submit an application, the sooner you will be evaluated for acceptance.

The application process starts with the submission of the application and all the associated documentation and recommendations. Oncethe secondary application and these materials are received and evaluated an interview will be scheduled. After the interview is completed, the interview responses and the application packet will then be presented to the department admissions committee for review and voting.

  • All applicants must apply through OPCAS
