About the Event
Dr. Geza Kegler will present information about his program at Kennesaw State University. In fall of 2020, the highly regarded Master of Science in Prosthetics and Orthotics (MSPO) program at Georgia Tech transferred to Kennesaw State University (KSU). The KSU MSPO is designed to prepare students for professional positions as Certified Orthotists Prosthetists in private or public health facilities to treat patients with orthotic and prosthetic devices. Continuing an established tradition of excellence, this two-year program includes clinical, technical and research components. In the clinical component, students learn to assess the needs of each patient and participate in care through clinical rotations at off-campus health facilities. In the technical component, students learn how to build prostheses and orthoses. They also gain research experience in the program’s labs. The MSPO is housed in KSU’s Department of Exercise and Sport Management in the Wellstar College of Health and Human Services, and it is the only program of its kind in Georgia and one of just 14 nationwide.
