Program Description

The Hybrid MSOP program is a blended-learning track. This track uses a spiral learning format: the first year in theory and online; and the second year in-practice and in-person, concentrating on clinical, technical, and patient management skills. Students who complete this track will graduate with an MSOP degree. 

Supervised clinical experience is obtained in a variety of settings during the program through clinical rotations and weekly grand rounds. These ongoing, weekly clinical rotations are an essential part of a student's academic and professional requirements, and prepare them for the final quarter clinical affiliations required for the completion of the MSOP degree curriculum.
