Find a New Career with the O&P Program

Orthotics & ProstheticsOrthotics and prosthetics, or O&P, is the evaluation, fabrication, and custom fitting of artificial limbs and orthopedic braces. It’s a trending health profession that includes both cutting edge technology and hands-on patient care. 

One way to get started in the O&P field is to become a certified technician. Students can attend an associate’s degree program and get extensive hands-on training in designing and making devices in the lab.

This new career program is only offered at five schools nationwide!

Once you finish the program you’ll become a licensed Orthotics and Prosthetics Technician, and there is virtually no down time between graduating and starting in the field. This isn’t just a job, it’s a career – and is a great opportunity for people looking for employment or to make a difference in people’s lives.

Not every patient is the same, not every condition is the same, and not every solution is the same.  That’s what makes the field a great fit for returning veterans, who have relied on these problem-solving skills in the military. Plus the GI bill pays for tuition, fees and actually some of your housing, so veterans can actually go back to school using a benefit that they earned and help out fellow vets. This is a great program for women as well – you have time and flexibility to balance work and your personal life.

You can make any one of the O&P professions a lifelong career or you could further your education and training to add to your credentials. There are tons of opportunities in patient care facilities, retail outlets, with hospitals, VA facilities, and with manufacturers. The ability to design and work with high-tech devices that drive the profession is another plus, and the new innovations keep it fresh and interesting. 

So whether you’re looking for a new career, or to better the world by helping patients and their families – you owe it to yourself to consider the O&P profession.  It’s your future, and everyone benefits. O&P is a fascinating and stable career where you have the opportunity to give back to people every day, and improve their quality of life.
