If you are a college student and have an interest in learning about the field of Orthotics and Prosthetics, NCOPI is pleased to invite you to attend our first ever Hands-On Education Experience.
Orthotics and Prosthetics (O&P) is the evaluation, fabrication, and custom fitting of artificial limbs and orthopedic braces. O&P is an allied health profession with a variety of exciting employment opportunities available, including O&P practitioners, pedorthists, assistants, fitters, and technicians.
The event is scheduled to take place December 4th from 11am – 1pm at 2717 Leighton Ridge Drive in Wake Forest.
We have room for up to 12 students and/or professors and are specifically interested in reaching out to students studying related fields, including but not limited to the following:

During the two hour session, you will hear from the founder and owner of North Carolina Orthotics and Prosthetics; be introduced to the educational requirements to pursue a future in the field; hear from a prosthetic patient about their personal experience; tour our fabrication facilities; and have an opportunity to ask any questions you might have about Orthotics and Prosthetics.
