Orthopedic Technology Schools and Colleges in the U.S.
Orthopedic technology programs prepare students to assist orthopedic physicians and surgeons. Allied health and vocational schools offer orthopedic technology training and award a certificate or associate's degree.
How to Select an Orthopedic Technology School
Most orthopedic technology programs require an application for admission. Prospective students should check program requirements when choosing a school. Some orthopedic technology programs require a passing grade in a college anatomy course and some even require current first aid and CPR certifications.
Consider the following also when looking for orthopedic technology schools:
- Students interested in pursuing education and training in orthopedic technology should look for a school that is accredited by the National Association of Orthopedic Technologists (NAOT).
- Those who aren't able to attend an NAOT approved school should at least look for a program that prepares its graduates for certification from the National Board for Certification of Orthopaedic Technologists (NBCOT).
