The Jesuit Difference

At Creighton, our Jesuit values guide everything we do, including our interprofessional approach to health care focused on patient care, values-centered teaching and a deep commitment to community service. What does that mean from a practical standpoint? We see patients as whole people–each one worthy of compassionate care. It means professors will ask you to think critically, you’ll take part in service-based initiatives that make a difference, and you won’t just become a practitioner. You’ll become a passionate, empathetic professional who can make real changes in the lives of your patients.

Choose Your Pathway

Creighton offers four different pathways to earn your OTD, and while the locations are different, the result is the same. You can earn your degree in a traditional, on-campus setting in Omaha, Nebraska, or through one of our hybrid programs. Hybrid offerings in AnchorageDenver and Phoenix let you view lectures online at your preferred time, while lab components are held on each pathway’s campus for a comprehensive, blended education.

Support to Succeed

Support from faculty and staff will be critical to your success at OT school. At Creighton, faculty members challenge students to grow, while also giving them the tools to succeed. We’re known for our rigorous curriculum, but here you won’t go it alone. Along with dedicated faculty, you’ll have access to support services like the Office of Academic and Student Affairs, which provides help with everything from finding housing to career development to tutoring. As part of the Creighton community, you’ll find the support you need to succeed.
