Master of Prosthetics & Orthotics (MPO)
The UW P&O program has graduated leaders in the profession since 1972 and is proud to reside in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, which is consistently ranked in the top four Rehab Departments by US News & World Report. The primary goal of the program is to train students to become practitioners with strong interdisciplinary communication skills who will work to enhance participation in life activities for persons with limb absence or disabling neuromuscular and musculoskeletal conditions. The signature features of the University of Washington’s MPO Program are the accomplished faculty; multidisciplinary courses taken with PT and OT students; intimate learning environment (instructor/student ratio 1:12); and clinical skill development through experiential learning.
