Prosthetics-Orthotics Program

The Prosthetics-Orthotics Program offers a solid knowledge base in related sciences and teaches the professional and technical skills necessary to meet the needs of patients requiring either replacement of a partially or totally absent limb or fitting of a brace to a disabled spine or limb. Graduates of the Program function as active members of the health care team, collaborating with other health care professionals in rehabili­tating people with chronic disabling illnesses, injuries, or birth defects. 


To ensure that graduates are eligible for certification and licensure, the Master of Prosthetics-Orthotics Program has earned accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs upon the recommendation of the National Commission on Prosthetic & Orthotic Education.
