Post Graduate Possibilities
The technical program provides us with the skills to fabricate Prosthetic and Orthotic devices. These skills include but are not limited to metal bending, sewing, working with resins, foams, plastics, plaster and machining skills. Upon completion of the program you will be ready to work as a technician in Prosthetics or Orthotics, maybe even both. This skill set we acquire is not limited to P&O as they also can be a doorway into other careers. We followed up with several George Brown Technical graduates who ended up specializing in areas other than the typical P&O. We wanted to hear their stories and learn how they got to where they are now. Our intentions were to identify the career path the graduates took, what further education is needed, what are their daily challenges, the growth potential, hours of work a week and estimated salary.
The career paths we have discovered is not a definitive list as there are other possible avenues to discover. It is important to keep an eye out for new opportunities and have an open mind.
