I am a second year Student at the University of Strathclyde, studying a Bsc in Prosthetics and Orthotics. I really enjoy the practical side of the course, especially getting experience with patients, seeing the positive impact a Prosthetist/Orthotist can have on a person’s life and applying the theory learnt to clinical situations. I have been a Student member of the Education committee within BAPO since October 2020.
