Overview

Prosthetists and Orthotists work with assistive devices that sit on the outside of the body and replace or assist any part of the body that is not functioning properly.

The technology used in the profession is individually adapted and focuses on increasing the quality of life for people with various limitations.

In addition to the main field of prosthetics and orthotics, the programme includes courses in anatomy, psychology, pathophysiology related to prosthetics and orthotics, mathematics and biomechanics. The field of prosthetics and orthotics combines working with people and technology in an interesting and exciting way.

The programme is spread over three years. The first year contains an overview of important concepts, theories and practical exercises. The second year includes, among other things, a short clinical placement course. In the third year you will deepen your knowledge and participate in a longer clinical placement, in addition to completing a major thesis project.
