The Orthotic & Prosthetic (O&P) Technologies program at Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology (OSUIT) teaches students about the design, fabrication and fitting of prosthetic limbs and orthopedic braces. Earning an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Orthotic & Prosthetic Technologies qualifies graduates for certification as a technician and orthotic fitter by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics and Prosthetics, and graduates of OSUIT’s program can go on to work as a technician or orthotic fitter in a variety of settings including hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation facilities, fabrication laboratories, nursing homes or private practices.
OSU Institute of Technology offers one of the industry's premier orthotic & prosthetic technologies programs, featuring:
There are no separate admissions requirements for the O&P program, and students may begin taking O&P courses in their first semester after being admitted to OSUIT. More information on how to apply to OSUIT can be found here. Students are also encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) when applying to OSUIT.
Our students find rewarding experiences through their internships with local clinics. They learn compassion for the patients and an awareness of diversity."
