Becoming Prosthetist/Orthotist

In 2012, standards for entry into the prosthetic and orthotic profession changed to require a graduate degree and associated residencies. This change is indicative of the high degree of expertise and professionalism required to not only successfully care for and treat those in need of prosthetic and orthotic care but to work with other health care professionals to maximize patient outcome.

In the prosthetic/orthotic and post-mastectomy fitter profession, there are a wide variety of career opportunities. In addition to the prosthetist and orthotist, there are many opportunities to work in this field. They include technicians, prosthetic/orthotic assistants, and administrative assistants who specialize in coding and billing.
