How to Become a Prosthetist/Orthotist
The traditional route of becoming a prosthetist/orthotist is to study a undergraduate degree, currently available at Strathclyde University or the University of Salford. In the next few years further options are becoming available including a new Masters Level course at Keele University and a apprenticeship Scheme which is being run by Derby University.
