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
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). The association recognizes only a small number of schools across the United States. Prospective students can search the NAOT website to find a list of approved orthopedic technology colleges.
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).
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.
