About this Program

The Prosthetic Practitioner program prepares students for a career as a prosthetist. A prosthetist cares for patients with partial or total absence of limb by designing, fabricating and fitting devices known as prostheses. The prosthetist's duties include assisting with formulating prescriptions for prostheses, taking measurements, cast taking, model modifications, selection of materials and components, patient fittings, alignment of the prosthesis on the patient, and maintaining patient records. After a mandatory one year National Commission of Orthotic and Prosthetic Education approved residency, the prosthetist may take the National Certification Exam. Program costs listed below are approximate, and books and other fees are not included for general education coursework.
