The Orthotic Practitioner program prepares the student for a career as an orthotist. An orthotist cares for patients with disabling conditions of the limbs and spine by providing devices known as orthoses. The orthotist's duties include assisting the physician in formulating prescriptions for orthoses, taking measurements and casts, model rectification, selection of materials and components, patient fittings, adjustments and repairs of the orthosis and maintaining patient records. After a mandatory one-year National Commission of Orthotic and Prosthetic Education approved residency, the orthotist may take the National Certification Exam.
