Associate in Applied Science
in Orthotic & Prosthetic Technologies

The Orthotic & Prosthetic Technologies program at OSU Institute of Technology teaches students about the design, fabrication and fitting of prosthetic limbs and orthopedic braces.

It’s one of only six two-year orthotic and prosthetic technician programs in the country, and graduates of OSUIT’s program can go on to work as technicians or orthotic fitters in a variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation facilities, fabrication laboratories, nursing homes and private practices.

Completing an internship is a requirement of the program so students not only get experience in the orthotics and prosthetics field, but also gain increased knowledge of the profession and more earning power.

Earning an Associate in Applied Science in Orthotic & Prosthetic Technologies qualifies you for certification as a technician by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics & Pedorthics (ABC). The 2017 pass rate for OSUIT graduates taking ABC certification exams is as follows:

  • Certified Orthotic Technician: 100 percent 
  • Certified Prosthetic Technician: 83 percent

The on-time program graduation rate for students in the Orthotic & Prosthetic Technologies program is 60 percent. The overall graduation rate is 70 percent.
