Clinical Experience

Under faculty supervision, a Prosthetics-Orthotics student aligns a lower limb prosthesis for his patient.

Because we’re part of a major medical center, you’ll have an outstanding opportunity to enhance your understanding and abilities through hands-on clinical experience in a variety of settings. Here are just a few of the places where you’ll broaden and refine your skills:

You’ll also complete a one-month, off-campus clinical experience during the second summer of the program. This experience provides a powerful opportunity to apply your skills as you learn from a clinician in the field and experience daily practice. There are dozens of options for this experience, from general practice to upper-limb prosthetics, pediatrics, acute management, and other focused specialties, in a wide variety of clinic, hospital, and community settings. Your faculty mentor will help you identify a focus and location that match your goals and interests.
