The MSOP program is 10 quarters long or 2.5 years in length. The program consists of didactic and clinical courses throughout the duration of the program.

The curriculum consists of several tracks of courses that allow students to learn and hone the depth of knowledge necessary for competent clinical application. Instead of presenting only a taste or introductory level of information, the program provides a rigorous and in depth academic and clinical approach to learning. These expanded course offerings directly influence the length of the MSOP program; at 2 ½ years in length, the MSOP program allows it’s students additional opportunities for learning and exploring areas of interest.

In additional to the didactic and clinical coursework students have ongoing opportunities to be exposed to the most advanced technologies of the field through participating in cutting edge seminars and product demonstrations through MSOP Practical Curriculum events. Practical Curriculum events are experiential learning opportunities presented by industry leaders and experts which allow students to explore new and exciting aspects of the development of the field in real time.
