Baylor College of Medicine School of Allied Health Sciences Master of Science in Orthotics and Prosthetics Program at Baylor College of Medicine expands Baylor’s proven track record of training exceptional allied health professionals.


The Orthotics and Prosthetics program at Baylor College of Medicine shares many of the successful practices and structures of Baylor’s Physician Assistant Program and Graduate Nurse Anesthesia program.There are 1.7 million persons with amputations in the United States, or roughly one out of every 200 people. Global estimates are harder to pinpoint, but it is likely there are between 12-20 million persons worldwide with amputations. More than 20 million persons in the United States need orthotic management for physical disability or injury. Globally, the need for orthotic management may be hundreds of millions.


All this means there is tremendous need for trained professionals with the knowledge and skills to help individuals who have lost a limb or are in need of orthotic intervention.
