Careers with An Impact
If you have strong math skills, a passion for human science and like working with your hands, consider a profession in Orthotics and Prosthetics.
Whether you want to learn how to work with specialized tools and equipment to design and fabricate orthotics and prosthetics, or want to develop the skills to fit clients with artificial limbs, braces and splints, your work will have a positive impact on the lives of others.
Regardless of which program stream you pursue, practical experience plays a significant role in your training. You’ll learn the importance of designing a treatment plan that is unique to an individual client’s needs.
