Master of Science in Orthotics and Prosthetics -- COMING SOON!

Salus University is excited to be launching a new master’s program in Orthotics and Prosthetics (O&P), which will be housed within the College of Health Sciences, Education and Rehabilitation.

Salus University is seeking accreditation by the National Commission on Orthotic and Prosthetic Education (NCOPE). The program submitted an Application for Candidacy, which is the formal application required in the pre-accreditation stage, and has been granted Candidacy status. Attainment of Candidate for Accreditation status does not assure that the program will be granted Accreditation. The University anticipates the inaugural class of students will start during the 2022-2023 academic year, pending a successful accreditation application.

Students in this program will learn in closely-knit cohorts alongside skilled faculty who are board-certified prosthetist-orthotists. New laboratory facilities are currently being constructed on the University’s Elkins Park, Pennsylvania campus, providing state-of-the-art, dedicated training and learning spaces for students in orthotics and prosthetics.
